F.C. New York Folding After One Season
F.C. New York has played their last game and have folded after only one season in USL PRO. The team was originally announced to play in 2010 but had issues getting organized and didn’t join USL until 2011 with when they joined the new USL PRO league.
Rumors and speculation have been swirling for months that the team’s front office was struggling to keep the team afloat during the season. A source told IMS that the USL had told F.C. New York they would not be allowed to participate in their 2012 season. Some speculated the club would move down to the USL’s Premier Development League.
F.C. New York becomes the 4th team to fold from USL PRO which started play in 2011. Puerto Rico United, River Plate Puerto Rico and Sevilla Puerto Rico were all removed by the league a month into the season after major financial issues became apparent for the 3 Puerto Rican teams.
