NEW YORK,NY(SMI-SPORTS, 12.14.21)-NYC turned Blue today-as Mayor Bill de Blasio hosted a special award ceremony honoring the NYCFC soccer team for winning the 2021 MLS Cup, and presenting them with the keys to the city, during a live presentation and 2,000 fans in attendance on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan.
 
The Boys in Blue made history by winning their first national soccer crown on club history after defeating Portland Timbers 4-2, in shootout in the final 2021 championship game last Saturday, becoming the first New York professional team to win a national crown since 2012 when the NYGiants defeated the New England Patriots 21-17, and won the Super Bowl XLVI.
