Uh.... we already have a second team, which I assume will be playing at our new stadium come time... This would be interesting. Or does QBFC merge with nycfcII or vice versa? Maybe nycfcII becomes QBFC?

i wonder if they still plan on making that stadium on York College.

EDIT: interesting the guy included nycfc in the tweet as a hashtag.
I don’t think they are. The York College stadium was always intended to be a temp stadium for QBFC and the lease included a clause that allowed the lease to be terminated if a permanent option wasn’t identified by earlier in 2022.

I can grab that exact clause and drop it in here a bit later

They want to start lower and play for promotion to USL Championship.

wow really? that was a very short time frame to find a permanent home. thats like two years since they were announced?

i doubt it? i feel like nycfc wants to keep its brand in mls next pro. apparently MLS does not like reserve teams to have a very different name from parent team.

Report that QBFC will join MLS Next Pro in 2024.


They have 2 teams playing in USL leagues so I don't know how that would work, if true. It's certainly a downgrade from their original plans.
Hmmm. MLS NEXT Pro does already have independent teams (they just announced another one in North Carolina) so it's at least possible. But it sounds like a branding nightmare. I can't imagine the USL going along with them all keeping the Queensboro name.
