FC Harlem in the News

July 26, 2015

Last week, FC Harlem representatives stood alongside executives, manager and first team players from their sponsor Chelsea Football Club to announce the launch of the iconic new Blue Pitch training facility in Harlem that will serve as a revolutionary, year-round community hub for local youth soccer players. Our design for the site, located on 145th Street and Riverside Drive, will completely regenerate the land under the Henry Hudson Highway and will be an anchor venue to support FC Harlem and other community programs year-round. Construction is due to begin in early 2016.

The two teams, with support from the rest of FC Harlem’s sponsors, celebrated the dedication with a 2v2 tournament in Harlem. Check out the recent news coverage below for more photos and details. Action shot courtesy of the FC Harlem Lions.
