Welcome to the New York Cosmos Update for FM12.

This update allows you the user to play as one of the most popular teams in North America.

The Cosmos were an American soccer club based in New York City, New York
and its suburbs. The team played home games in three stadiums around
New York before moving in 1977 to Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, New
Jersey, where it remained for the rest of its history. Founded in 1971,
the team competed in the North American Soccer League (NASL) until 1984
and was the strongest franchise in that league, both competitively and
financially – based largely around its backing by Warner Communications
President Steve Ross, which enabled it to sign internationally famous
stars such as the Brazilian forward Pelé, Italian striker Giorgio
Chinaglia and the West German sweeper Franz Beckenbauer. The acquisition
of these foreign players, particularly Pelé, made the Cosmos into what
Gavin Newsham called "the most glamorous team in world football", and
contributed to the development of soccer across the United States, a
country where it had previously been largely ignored.

The team was once again formed in August 2010 after folding when the
NASL league collapsed by a consortium led by English businessman Paul
Kemsley, and aspires to become a franchise of Major League Soccer, the
top professional soccer league in the United States of America and

The team's structure includes two players from the original team, Pelé
and Giorgio Chinaglia, as honorary president and international
ambassador respectively. Former France and Manchester United forward
Eric Cantona became director of soccer in January 2011, with former
United States international Cobi Jones as his deputy.
