Its been almost two years of waiting but thankfully, we can still call it a wait. The New York Cosmos submitted their proposal for a World Class soccer specific stadium back in 2013 to the Empire State Development Corporation. Their request is still being considered along with four other proposals to develop the land adjacent to Belmont Racetrack in Elmont Long Island. Aside from that, nothing has changed. The ESDC continues to review the proposals. They have not denied it. They have not receive any others. Could politics be holding this up? Perhaps.

Recenlty a Facebook page was started simply to keep awareness of the proposed stadium alive. The Cosmos stadium proposal remains a strong feather in the cap for US Soccer. It is a world class facility that will likely surpass any other soccer stadium in the United States. It is also one that would be an economic boost to the local government in and around Long Island.

I ask those that read this blog to take a quick trip over to the following Facebook page, assuming that you do have a Facebook account, and just “Like” The Cosmos Stadium page. As always, when we learn more news about the proposal in the future we will include it here. You can find the Cosmos Stadium page here. Remember, all I ask is that you click like on the page!

For now I will leave you with the video that still leaves me with chills every time I view it – the video animation of the proposed New York Cosmos Stadium.
