2016.03.13 Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
Home Opener, 30,315 attendance
NYCFC and Toronto drew 2-2 in a good game that almost got away from NYCFC, when MLS MVP Sebastian Giovinco fired a shot in the final minutes of the game that Josh Saunders pounced on to keep the game tied at 2-2.
David Villa earned Man of the Match honors for his 2-goal effort, scoring on a penalty kick in the 24 min and again at 28 mins.
Toronto put on pressure with a goal from Damien Perquis at 45+2. Giovinco netted the game tying goal at 76 mins
We got a break on the tickets, since Mike knows someone who works for NYCFC, however my options were a mobile ticket or to print my own...some days I hate technology... the above generic paper printed ticket was what we used to enter the game..
The bottom ticket is someone's discard..which I will keep with my collection..
For a home opener the event offered nothing more than a good game, good crowd and a great atmosphere. I am not totally happy watching a match in the spacious Yankee Stadium, but the crowd backing the NYCFC is passionate, which helps...
