NYCFC is making a big difference in the community.

New York City Football Club was born from a commitment to its community, which began in 2010 with East Harlem’s Lexington Academy. The synthetic grass rooftop field provided the first of its kind in Manhattan and continues to provide football opportunities to the elementary school and its students. The field is just one part of the story ;as the Club grows, so does its community work. City in the Community’s (CITC) is developing its outreach program using football to empower the most in need young people across New York City.

City in the Community in NYC History 
In 2010, CITC launched a partnership with Lexington Academy and the UAE to build an enclosed rooftop soccer pitch in East Harlem that would provide a safe and healthy place for the community to play soccer. City Soccer in the Community was formed and additional pitches were built in inner-city communities in East LA, Miami, Chicago and D.C. True its roots and community heritage, NYCFC was launched from Lexington Academy in 2013.
