Watch NYCFC Beat Seattle in Slow Motion During a Rain-Filled Match at Yankee Stadium

Our New York City FC triumphed over the Seattle Sounders this past Saturday 2-1. In this slow motion video from the club, watch as the team plays on a completely rain-soaked field at Yankees Stadium.

Seattle appeared to have brought the weather with them from the West Coast as the rain beat down upon the Etihad Pitch from kickoff right through the 90'. Initially making for a slick surface, the downpour intensified and took its toll on the field from the 15th minute mark, causing the ball to hold up and drawing a little of the pace from NYCFC’s usual back-to-front buildup play.
