How is a locker room that lacks showers fit for college soccer?

It's not. I actually live pretty close to Rutgers. the field is below high school standards. I don't go to games because it's a terrible facility. There's no parking lot, you park on grass and when it's been raining all week, it's impossible to get out. I hope and pray that either the RedBulls or NYCFC buy the team. I'm not surprised no one wants to play for them. They'll be just as bad next season unless things improve.

reports are coming out that SkyBlue may fold this offseason with NYCFC possibly being granted an expansion team for 2020 along with LAFC. NWSL is looking to restructure itself this offseason and may not add any expansion teams.

Of course it's not a definite. But when players and STH are protesting the team it's not a good sign.

I keep hoping NYRB or NYCFC will buy this team. The Sky Blue front office is just a joke. It would be sad to lose another team if they fold and it would look horrid for the league from a perception standpoint to lose 3 teams in 2 years.

Sky Blue have already passed their attendance record which was back in 2009(6,000+). Really feel they'll get around 10k for this game.

Sky Blue FC drew 9,400+ at Red Bull Arena yesterday. Apparently the rent is ridiculously high, so the likelihood of them returning there seem slim. But definitely some hope for 2020 that their front office finally has their act together.

If the Red Bulls would just go ahead and buy the team and relocate it to Harrison, there would be no rent to pay.

Sky Blue's final home game has been moved to Red Bull Arena (Sept. 29). It will be a double-header with the Red Bulls. Sky Blue will now play at 11am with the Red Bulls' game at 5pm.

This could be a good sign for next season if they can get an agreement with them to play a select few games there. Or, the Red Bulls can just buy the team already.
