To our heroes –
Since twitter only allows me 140 characters, I took to our website for this message.
Today you guys have the opportunity to take New York City and make it yours. Since 1971 the Cosmos have been THE soccer team in New York City. True supporters know that there has been no other brand to truly represent New York Soccer. That team that you are playing today has tried to fill that void while the Cosmos were dormant and some around New York City might say the they truly did that. We know better.
As supporters, when the Cosmos were revived in 2013, we were ecstatic that the club was back to reclaim the title of New York’s soccer club and without hesitation, we came to the matches and the Five Points were created to support you. Today is the day to solidify that title. Today is a chance to prove the soccer world that the Cosmos are for real and to prove to MLS that soccer exists outside their warped little bubble.
From a supporters perspective, we are thrilled to be a part of today’s match. We are ready to take Schuart stadium to new heights in terms of support and noise. We vow to give you 1000% today in the stands next to our brothers and sisters, the Borough Boys and La Banda Del Cosmos.
PLay hard, and play proud and there is no question that you guys will come out on top! Just know that when you need that small ounce of encouragement take a glance over beyond the North goal. We will be there shouting, dancing and screaming and doing our part to push you that extra bit.
Good luck today guys, beat up the Red Bulls and Lets Go Cosmos!!
With Green and White Pride,
THE CROSS ISALND CREW!
