For the first time in network history, YES will air the club’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal playoff match against Orlando City SC on Saturday, Nov. 21 at noon ET. Coverage will begin at 11:30 a.m. ET with a 30-minute pregame show hosted by Joy and Tolleson.
NYCFC enters their fifth consecutive playoff appearance on the back of a four-match win streak in which they have outscored their opponents 13 to 6. In a COVID-19 shortened season, NYCFC finished with their second highest points per game average in club history, just trailing last season’s finish atop the Eastern Conference table.
The boys in blue head to Exploria Stadium unbeaten in their least three visits to Orlando, which includes a 1-1 draw earlier this season.
