Sky Blue FC partners with NYC soccer film festival

National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) club Sky Blue FC is looking to expand its presence in the New York area by partnering with soccer film festival Kicking and Screening.

The New Jersey-based team will activate on the third evening of the NYC festival, on June 6, which focuses on the women’s game.

Sky Blue personnel will participate in a panel discussion and Q&A, there will be giveaways and raffle prizes during the evening, and all paying attendees will receive a complimentary ticket to the home game against Orlando Pride on June 22 at Yurcak Field, located at Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J.

The club has suffered both on and off the field in recent years, with multiple reports about poor living and working conditions for players.

The NWSL has reportedly extended its sponsorship deal with Nike until 2022, a move which could encourage FC Barcelona to set up a team in the league.
