Major League Soccer to Present New York City Stadium Plan

Major League Soccer is taking its plan to build a 25,000-seat home for a new team in New York City to the politicians in Queens who will decide the project’s fate.

The league will present its plan for a stadium in Flushing Meadows Corona Park to Borough President Helen Marshall, Queens city council members and community leaders on Dec. 3, Dan Andrews, a spokesman for Marshall, said today by e-mail. The project is backed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said it will create jobs in an area still recovering from the recession that ended in 2009.
