On Tuesday, The NPSL's Brooklyn Italians announced a partnership with the New York Cosmos. According to the club, they are now the first official affiliate of the Cosmos:
The club's website doesn't get into the specifics of the affiliation, but do state that we'll be hearing those details later on Tuesday:
The organization is proud to announce that it is officially a founding member affiliate of the NY Cosmos. Please revisit the site later on in the day to view the details of this relationship.
The Italians play in the same division as the New York Cosmos B side, so it will certainly be interesting to hear what this affiliation entails. Cosmos head coach Gio Savarese also has a conference call scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, where he'll certainly be asked about the arrangement.
