ASN Morning Read: MLS At The House That Jeter Built
After news came out last week, the new MLS club confirmed that it will be playing at Yankee Stadium; David Moyes has since been sacked, but Tim Howard didn't like the reception he received.
New York City FC officially announced the team will start play at Yankee Stadium next season. The stadium’s regular capacity is around 50,000, which will be reduced to 33,444 for soccer. One of the major concerns was the pitcher’s mound, which was on the pitch in past friendlies at the stadium. That won’t be the case moving forward.

Here’s a rendering of what the stadium will look like in NYCFC mode:
David Moyes was fired this morning, but Tim Howard wasn’t pleased that Everton fans gave him a rude welcome back to Goodison Park on Sunday. "We have brilliant fans, but that was unfair on him," Howard said. "He was the second coming, the messiah 12 months ago, and I don't think as Evertonians we should ever forget that.”
KICKTV visited Bayern Munich and the club’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was optimistic about the United States’ chances in Brazil. Said the West Germany legend: "Two teams I'm seeing as favorites to qualify for the next round are Germany, and maybe this will surprise you, the States.”
In more MLS stadium news, David Beckham's real estate adviser is sparring with a former Royal Caribbean Cruises vice president who is leading the opposition against a Miami club's waterfront site. Fortunately for us, this went down on local television and is a must-watch. Somebody says Beckham is "just like Miami; he's beautiful, he's sexy, he's hot."
