After being inspired by Mateo Durango and Johnny Borrajo’s efforts with Playing for Pride, we decided on starting a campaign with Prideraiser. Bred out of a simple challenge between friendly supporter groups in Chattanooga and Detroit, supporters groups with Prideraiser raised over $12,000 last year for local LGBTQIA causes. With the number of groups nearly tripling this year as compared to 2018, we’re more than happy to add our name to the list and keep with our ethos of aiding our LGBTQIA comrades in the stands as well as outside of it.

There’s no better partner for us in this effort than Brooklyn Pride Community Center. Through a variety of positive, life affirming activities, Brooklyn Pride Community Center aims to give the LGBTQIA in New York City’s largest borough a safe space to celebrate, heal, learn, create, organize, relax, socialize, and play.

Additionally, we would like to announce that June 9th will be our section’s Pride Celebration match as the Cosmos face New York Athletic Club at Commisso Stadium at 7pm. Come out, party, and watch your dollars go to work as we put seven past a gym club while celebrating pride. No place for homophobia or transphobia, no compromise.

There’s always more work to be done as we fight for inclusion for all (besides fucking nazis), but be sure to give what you can to continue the cause in Brooklyn.

Vamos Cosmos!

Cosmos B Release 2018 Schedule

In an offseason that’s been full of turmoil for our club, the first sign of good news emerged Monday: Cosmos B will field a team this Summer.

Cosmos B play in the NPSL, the 4th Tier of US Soccer, and have served as the reserve team for the club since 2015. While the NASL is locked up in legal purgatory and has chosen to forgo a Spring season in favor of an August to June one, the B team will serve as the most senior squad in the meantime.

As is our mission as supporters of the New York Cosmos, we plan to fully support the B team as we would the NASL squad, and hope to see the club operate the team with the highest level of professionalism and determination to win. In fact, we call upon the club to do just that. In addition, we implore them to field our remaining nine players, as well as look for options to have the club play in Brooklyn as well as the listed home ground at Mitchell Athletic Complex in Long Island.

Below is the schedule for the short Summer Season, stay tuned in the coming weeks for travel plans for the opening away game on 5/5/18 in Boston.
