At a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, the New York Cosmos officially opened their practice facility on the grounds of the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale, New York.
The Cosmos, spending $400,000 of their own money to redevelop and renovate the complex, will use the space as their practice facility while playing games at Shuart Stadium in nearby Hempstead, New York.
“This is another exciting step in the reboot of the Cosmos,” COO Erik Stover said in a statement. “As a professional team, it’s very important to have great partners. With Nassau County, we have that and more. This couldn’t have happened without their support. Now, we’re looking forward to the next big step – Cosmos Opening Day on Aug. 3 at Hofstra.”
The Cosmos secured a ten-year lease for the land in Uniondale, as they continue to try and land a deal with New York City to build a stadium in on the grounds of the Belmont Racetrack.
