NYCFC women’s team in the works?

The team asked season ticket holders about their interest in a women's team at the new Willets Point stadium.

A recent survey of New York City FC season ticket holders regarding the club’s planned Willets Point soccer stadium included a question gauging fan interest in that stadium also hosting a women’s team.

The survey looks to be the club’s first attempt to get direct fan feedback on the future NYCFC stadium since the Willets Point project was announced in November. Questions in the survey were largely focused on things like stadium amenities and ticket pricing, so the inclusion of a direct question about a women’s team stands out. 

The survey asked respondents to share “their attitude towards a new NYCFC-affiliated women’s pro team,” with answer options ranging from Very Positive to Very Negative. The survey made it clear that all its questions were “for research purposes only,” and any NYCFC-adjacent women’s team is likely still as many years away as the Willets Point stadium, if not more.
