On September 25th, the Lexington Soccer team went to Yankee Stadium and watched a Major League Soccer (MLS) game between the New York City Football Club (NYCFC) and the Atlanta Football Club.
The team saw how the professional soccer players do warm ups and how they handle the soccer ball. The Lexington players and managers discussed how professional players play the game. The students learned a lot from this experience and definitely enjoyed the game.
Lexington would like to thank NYCFC making sure the students had a good time. We also want to thank NYCFC Business Development Executive, Matt Mandile, for his help in finding good tickets. The team is looking forward to returning to Yankee Stadium and witnessing another game in the future.
Special thanks to head coach, Gabriel, and assistant coach, Servio Carrillo Valdivieso, for coordinating this experience for the students.
