From the Daily News:
The world's most popular sport will soon have a home in Queens.
A new soccer team called F.C. New York is coming in 2010 - and it's looking to build a soccer-specific stadium in the borough in the next five years, team officials announced Wednesday.
F.C. New York will join the United Soccer League as an expansion franchise, and play its first game in April 2010 at Hofstra University.
The Hempstead campus will be the home turf, with occasional games at Columbia University's Baker Field until a new home is built, officials said.
The team recently met with Borough President Helen Marshall to discuss building a 9,000-seat stadium in Queens.
