New York City FC announced Wednesday that they will open the 300 level at Yankee Stadium due to high demand for their June 28 match against the New York Red Bulls.
“The atmosphere at our home games has been fantastic all season,” New York City FC president Tom Glick said in a statement. “When we were looking at this game on June 28 being on the verge of selling out this far in advance, we made the decision to open up more seats to accommodate the demand. We are pleased with the momentum we have had in tickets sales and that so many New Yorkers continue to get behind our Club in our inaugural season.”
This is the second time that New York City FC have opened additional sections at Yankee Stadium to accommodate demand for tickets. The club previously opened the full stadium for the home opener in March, when attendance surpassed 43,500.
