The Cosmos, returning to the NASL, have a park on long island that they want to build, if my memory is correct. If MLS ever goes to a promotion/relegation system with 2nd tier NASL and 3rd tier USL, the Cosmos could push for promotion into MLS.
So there could feasibly be three pro soccer NY area teams of reputation. NY FC died recently. For my part, I'm sticking with RBNY.
Don't think they ever go 3 NY area teams. There was mention of the Man City thing but that's not happening.
Cosmos will be the 2nd team in a couple of years and they'll put it in Queens. Initially I was against it, but I've come around to the idea that it can only help the Red Bulls and local soccer in this area.
