Long Island City-based football fans are in luck: a new Socceroof football field is coming to the neighborhood.
Located at 36-39 35th Street in Dutch Kills, this will be Socceroof’s first location in Queens. The city’s first Socceroof facility is located at 14b 53rd Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Socceroof was created by the French JÃ©rÃ´me Meary and Jean-David Tartour with the aim of spreading the passion for soccer in the hearts of North Americans. Their mission is to create a community by bringing together football enthusiasts and players both online and offline.
The ârooftopâ aspect of Socceroof helps make football more accessible for those who live in urban areas, such as the New York metro area, as it promotes the full use of buildings for its facilities.
The facility was purchased by Newmark Group, which is a leading commercial real estate consulting firm headed by CEO Barry M. Gosin. Those represented in the transaction with the tenants of the building were Newmark’s senior managing director Jordan Gosin, managing director Josh Gosin and managing partner Alex Rosenblum.
âWe’ve been working with Socceroof for eight years, and it has been phenomenal to see their growth in the city,â said Gosin. âThey bring a sense of community and enthusiasm for the sport to the regions they serve and provide a great place for local youth as well as adults to hone their skills.â
The facilities will be built on 10,000 square feet of the 20,000 square feet of the building, which was constructed in 1952.
The brand will take over half of the 20,000 square foot property and will soon open the facility inside the 10,000 square foot space with the help of its general manager Jonathan Lupinelli.
Construction of the facility is still ongoing, but is expected to be open to the public in fall 2021.
Socceroof facilities can be booked privately for recreational and commercial events, while recreational, youth and adult football leagues are also available to the public.
