New York City FC Launches Campaign to Recruit Fans Starring Manchester City Footballers [VIDEO]

New York City FC, the MLS team that will launch in 2015, has launched a campaign to recruit new fans of its club by featuring several Manchester City footballers juggling the ball around New York City.

The Manchester City footballers featured in the video are Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany, James Milner, Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri, Joe Hart, David Silva, Gael Clichy and Matija Nastasic. The video sees the City players take part in a pass and move game around the city, spanning iconic New York locations including Brooklyn Bridge Park, Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, Manhattan Highline and Rucker Park in Harlem.

The call to action in the video is to encourage soccer fans to join the New York City FC movement. To encourage fans to sign up, City is giving away opportunities to win free tickets to City’s opening game of the 2015 season.

Meanwhile, the team still doesn’t have a stadium to call home, and is likely to play at the temporary home of the New York Yankees baseball team until a soccer-specific stadium can be built.
