The team will begin their 2022 preseason at IMG Academy for ten days starting on January 19, and then continue to train in California for two weeks in February (7 - 19) to compete in the Coachella Valla Invitational, hosted by LA Galaxy.
New York has already begun this year’s preseason on Sunday with the first official training and will stay in New Jersey until Wednesday.
