The Third Rail

New York


The Third Rail is the first recognized independent Supporters Group for New York City FC. We are a group of fans from all over the city (and the world) who come together to have fun, play soccer, raise money for good causes, and support the first Major League Soccer club to play in our great city.


For $30, you can be part of the first and largest officially recognized supporters group of New York City FC. As a member, you will be joining a community of other passionate fans as we grow the game and experience of soccer in New York City. We do this through songs and chants at home and away games, creating tifo, playing the game, supporting charitable initiatives and showing our pride in our team everywhere we go.
