New York City FC announces Juneteenth Match Day Programming and Further Initiatives

New York City Football Club (NYCFC) remains focused on evolving the practices and structure to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Club and across the City.

Last summer, NYCFC announced the Club’s Starting XI Commitments as a pledge to make lasting, tangible, and ongoing commitments to the Black Lives Matter movement and to foster an inclusive, progressive culture in line with the Club’s core values of equality, dignity, and respect. One year later, the Club continues to educate and recognize Juneteenth with players, staff, and fans. This year, the Club will host the first-ever NYCFC Juneteenth Match, but initiatives will extend far beyond gameday.
