NEW YORK – The Cosmos have a new home for 2019.
They will play their home games for the National Premier Soccer League regular season and Founders Cup at Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale, N.Y.
The schedule for both competitions will be announced at a later date.
The Cosmos split last season at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium in Hempstead, N.Y. and Rocco B. Commisso Stadium at Columbia University.
Since 2013, Mitchel has been the the club’s training facility.
It is across the street — Hempstead Turnpike — from James M. Shuart at Hofstra, where the team played from 2013-16.
“Mitchel Athletic Complex has served as the club’s training facility since 2013 and we felt it was the right venue for our home games as we prepare for the 2019 NPSL season and Founders Cup,” Cosmos senior vice president Joe Barone said. “We look forward to releasing the schedules for both the NPSL regular season and Founders Cup soon and having Cosmos Country and the New York area as a whole once again supporting us this season.”
