Meet your new New York City commissioner!

We're excited to announce that Steve Hamlin has started in a full-time operations role with us and has begun the process of taking over as the New York City commissioner! Steve started out with us a field manager assistant in Long Island a few years ago, and has since done countless matches for us both in that same role and as one of our photographers at the fields. 

Steve recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in sports management from St. John's University and has experience in the professional game working for the New York Red Bulls and New York Cosmos. He is an avid Arsenal fan (much like our former commissioner Todd Jasko) and had this to say about joining the Gotham Family on a full time basis:

"I'm so excited to sign on full-time with GSL! Going forward, I can't wait to give my all to growing this league and adding to the rich culture of soccer in New York City. We have such a great community of players with a lot of unique offerings across the boroughs and I can't wait to play a bigger role in what we do in New York City in the coming years!"

We're excited to have Steve hit the ground running, and during this transition period he has already become the point of contact for a few of our small-sided divisions, including Women's 9s and Co-Ed 7v7, and take full control of New York City in the fall. You can follow Steve on Instagram and Twitter or reach out to him directly at steve@gothamsoccer.com.

Men's Spring Champions Roundup!

With our spring trophy presentations drenched in champagne and all finished, here’s a roundup of all of our mens sides that took home their division championships this summer! Thanks to all of the players that were involved in one of our most fun spring title races in recent memory! We can’t wait to see what summer holds for our teams.

D1 Champions – CLS United

With Ballistic FC breaking up their historic title streak in the fall, CLS were in inspired form as they made their way to another D1 final. Praire Dogs of Brooklyn were worthy opponents and took Jeff Alexander’s team to penalties. CLS prevailed, capturing their historic ninth cup. Congratulations, guys!

D2 Champions – Bapanim

Orchard FC had a late goal to deny Bapanim promotion in last years D2 final, but the boys in neon green stormed back for another final, this time facing Joseph “Blue” Pulaski FC in another promotion battle. After a testy 45, Bapanim notched a few late goals and gained their long-awaited promotion! Congratulations to Tomer and his team!

Late Night 7s Champions – Hudson FC

136 goals later, the late night 7s division was decided on a penalty shootout! Hudson FC, who went back and forth with Wash Ups FC all season, captured the title at Pier 40 at the end of one of our most exciting title races in 7s yet! Congratulations guys!

Sunday 5v5 Champions – 50 Shades of O’Shea

Only three goals separated 50 Shades of O’Shea and legendary Gotham Wednesday in the fight for first seed in this past Sunday’s playoffs at Upper 90 Astoria. However, 33 goals in the semi-finals and finals propelled one of our best named clubs to the trophy. Congrats, fellas!

Women's 9v9 Spring Champs!

Brooklyn City FC

Congrats to Brooklyn City FC on winning their first title in our Women's 9v9 division. It's been awesome to see another new champion in this division. It's not often a league is able to maintain such an even but intense level of competition amongst all of its teams. 

Although many close matches, Brooklyn City FC managed to pull through with an undefeated season. It took a last minute goal in the final in dramatic fashion, but an incredible season. Well done!
