NEW YORK -- Manchester City and the New York Yankees have joined forces to establish a $100 million Major League Soccer team.
New York City Football Club will be the MLS's 20th team and is set to start playing from the 2015 season.
"This is not a marketing gimmick," City chief executive Ferran Soriano said in a conference call on Tuesday. "This is about developing a team that will play very good football and will have a chance to win."
