This fall we are making all the preparations to bring back our core divisions - Men's 11v11 D1 + D2, Men's 9v9, and Women's 9v9. If possible, we will continue the Men's 7v7 division from the spring, if we are given the permit back. Men's 5v5 is in consideration. This is all under the caveat it remains safe to do so. Check out the video below for a more in depth update and a response regarding refunds.
First bit of news, some of you may have seen the video I posted, but since then we have heard from Pier 40, they have made the field available for the fall to league play. Which is great. Permits haven't been sent yet, but I expect to see them soon. Hopefully we will hear from BBP, Randall's, and BIP soon.
The plan is to bring each of these divisions back this fal the week following Labor Day weekend.
So, if each captain or free agent could reach out with their interest, availability, comfort level / precaution requests for their team. That would be greatly appreciated. I'll get division specific emails out once I have heard from everyone.
I will have further updates on refunds or a potential credit system that would provide more credit towards the league than originally paid for that submitted their payment for the spring. We're still hashing that out.
Additionally, given the way this year has panned out, we are a little short on full time staff, which is okay because it will make it easier for us to get refunds back out. With that, it's unlikely you will see much of me, as I will literally be all over the country, however we have a couple of new additions to the team as part time help to keep everything in NYC flowing. In fact we may have more boots on the ground, so it should work out well.
More information soon, especially regarding safety. For now I just look forward to hearing from everyone. I hope regardless of whether or not you can play, that you and your squad or hanging in there and remaining healthy.
Hey everyone! Just wanted to throw out another update.
As of right now, all permits in NYC are on hold through August. We’re in constant contact with the the venues and we’ll keep you in the loop when we hear of a tentative start date.
Our safety protocols and precautions are almost finished and will have those posted soon. Safety is our biggest priority and we want to make sure that our players and staff feel safe to return.
Stay safe!Read More
It’s been a crazy few months, to say the least! As things are starting to return to normal, we figured we would give an update.
Our top priority is making sure that we can play in a safe and healthy environment. While some places are giving the green light to play, we still have to wait for the final thumbs up from local municipalities and the organizations that run the fields.
While we are all excited to get back on the pitch, we prioritize player safety and therefore we are formulating plans and procedures to ensure we meet our guidelines and the state’s.
In the meantime, we are taking this time to work on making Gotham the best recreational soccer league in the country. We would love to hear from you and what we can do to make your experience better.
Please take a couple of minutes to take a brief survey here:
We will continue to answer emails and will keep you updated through our blogs and social media accounts.
Stay safe and stay healthy! We’ll see you on the pitch in no time.
Hey Gotham Fam!
We just wanted to remind you that matches will be postponed for the next month. The health and safety of our players is our top priority and we’ll be back on the pitch once it’s safe to do so.
