Queens is getting its own professional soccer team and it will be led by David Villa, a member of the Spanish national team that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Villa along with Jonathan Krane, a New York City-based asset manager, have secured a United Soccer League franchise to establish a professional men’s soccer team in the World’s Borough.

Queensboro FC will begin playing in 2021 and compete in The USL Championship, a Division II professional league, a tier below Major League Soccer.
