Was zuviel ist, ist zuviel!
Die Entweihung des heiligen Rasens Yankee Stadium ist vollbracht! Die spielen doch tatsächlich Soccer da drauf. Schlimmer geht´s nimmer.
Was heißt Entweihuhg? Fußball und das Stadium haben eine lange Tradition, die nun wieder auflebt. In den 1970ern hat der NY Cosmos zB seine Spiele im YS gehabt.
The old Yankee Stadium had a long tradition of hosting soccer matches, bringing in some of the most famous teams in the world, including Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Juventus and Celtic, as well as the national teams of the US, England and Italy.The first major match at the old stadium was played all the way back in 1931, when Celtic played a team of all-stars from the American Soccer League.Soccer legend Pele has deep ties to the old Yankee Stadium, having played there in a friendly match with Brazilian club Santos against Portuguese star Eusebio and Benfica in 1968 before calling the stadium home with the NASL’s New York Cosmos in 1976. The Cosmos spent two years at the stadium, playing there in their debut season of 1971 and again in 1976 before playing out the remainder of their years in the old NASL at Giants Stadium in New Jersey.
