On Sunday, July 12th, more than 100 campers and their families from Camp Shape in New Rochelle, joined the coaching staff at Backyard Sports at Yankee Stadium to watch the New York City Football Club (NYCFC) take on Toronto FC for a home soccer match.
Camp Shape is a summer camp in New Rochelle that brings together kids from all over New Ro with common interests in soccer, tennis, and basketball. After the start of a great summer at Camp Shape, the players and their families were excited to watch NYCFC play against Toronto FC. The game ended with a final tie score of 4-4. For many of the kids, Sunday’s game was the first professional soccer game they’d ever experienced. In all, 100 soccer fans attended—including players, families, and coaches. It was a great day filled with lots of soccer, cheering, and time with family and friends.
Say hi to Connor — This was not his first time at a professional soccer game! Connor’s favorite player is Andrea Pirlo, a defensive midfielder new to NYCFC who also plays on the Italian National football team.
