QUEENS, N.Y. — After Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Columbus Crew SC, New York City FC earned the second seed in the Eastern Conference for the MLS playoffs.
As a result, NYCFC will have a bye week before heading into the Eastern Conference semifinals. Leg 1 will take place Oct. 30 or 31 with NYCFC on the road. Leg 2 will be held at Yankee Stadium Sunday, Nov. 5.
Tickets for the conference semifinal will go on sale to the public on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at nycfc.com
The club had announced that any potential home Eastern Conference semifinal leg would take place on Nov. 1 but, due to the venue chage of a sporting event which had been scheduled at Yankee Stadium, NYCFC will revert back to Nov. 5 as initially outlined by MLS.
