So, just what was the top area soccer story of the year?

Was it New York City FC winning the MLS Eastern Conference crown but getting eliminated in the playoffs again. Or was it head coach Dome Torrent and sporting director Claudio Reyna leaving the club?

Was it the Red Bulls releasing club legends Bradley Wright-Phillips and Luis Robles after years of service to the club?

Was it Sky Blue FC moving to Red Bull Arena for the 2020 NWSL season?

Or perhaps it was another story.

Later this month, will present the top 10 soccer stories of the metropolitan area.
