History

New York City Football Club would become the 20th club to join the MLS in 2015. The club would become the 2nd club based in New York and the first to be in the city proper. The club has played all games in their history at Yankee Stadium. When the club began play in 2015, they had hired former Real Salt Lake great, Jason Kreis, as his contract with that club would expire shortly. However, Kreis would last only one year before being replaced by Patrick Vieira. Under Vieira, the club would make dramatic improvements from the Kreis-led side’s 17th finish in 2015, to the Vieira-led fourth place finish in the 2016 League campaign and a playoff berth. The Vieira-led club would make the conference semifinals which the club would repeat for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 seasons. Despite the success experiences by Vieira he would depart midway through the 2018 season to coach for Ligue 1 side Nice. Domènec Torrent (long-term Assistant of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City) would be appointed to the NYCFC job in short order. Torrent’s beginning at the club would be bright, but would slowly fade as the end of the season approached, culminating in a seventh-placed finish. At the end of the 2018 season, Torrent would begin wholesale changes to the club in preparation for the 2019 season.
