Brooklyn Football Club, which will make their USL League One debut in 2025, revealed their colors, badge, and identity earlier today. An executive at the club says that the team will announce even more significant news soon.

Matt Rizzetta, founder of North Sixth Group that’s behind the launch of Brooklyn Football Club, said the club have an agreement in principle on a home stadium in Brooklyn that they hope to announce in the next 30-45 days, pending approvals from FIFA and US Soccer related to the field surface. 

Rizzetta didn’t name the venue, and didn’t respond when asked if Maimonides Park, the 7,000-capacity minor league baseball stadium in Coney Island once home to the New York Cosmos, is under consideration. 

Rizzetta said stadium Plan Bs and Plan Cs have also been identified. “Obviously the big elephant in the room with soccer, pro soccer in Brooklyn, where are you going to play? Both Plan A and B are dedicated stadiums in the borough of Brooklyn,” Rizzetta said. “We are doing everything we can to play in Brooklyn, and we’re super confident we’ll be able to.”
