The Cosmos, that on-again-off-again second New York MLS franchise/global soccer brand/grassroots soccer organization that shortchanges youth teams/defunct team from the 80's/band name held hostage/the single greatest thing to ever happen to soccer in this hemisphere, is set to join the North American Soccer League next year.
The NASL announced the news today in a press release you can, which is, as many press releases are, short on details -- no tangible details like a home field announced yet -- and long on self-congratulations and canned quotes on just how thrilling it is to be involved in such a momentous occasion.
If you're so inclined, you can read the press release here.
You can read Cosmos chairman Seamus O'Brien's letter to "Cosmos Country" here, which also happens to be filled to the brim with self congratulations and canned quotes only with more astroturfing of history.
UPDATE: Jack Bell over at the New York Times is reporting the team will play at Hofstra University.
