Identity Sketches for NYC FC

Until this past Tuesday, it was NY2.

NY2 was a fable; a mythical soccer club whose only identity was the visible will of a determined commissioner and the rustle of dollar bills passing through customs at JFK. As of Tuesday, NY2 is a real club with real qualities. The details and implications will be hashed out elsewhere; what I care about is identity. And NY2 now has an identity: New York City FC. That’s all we know for sure, of course – the name. We don’t know colors or nicknames or positioning or attitude or anything else. But we can infer some things.


Hey folks. I’m in the process of cleaning up, re-mastering and re-launching some of my most-read articles… including this one.
