2019 MLS Regular Season - Week 9
New York City FC vs. Chicago Fire
Yankee Stadium — Bronx
April 24 - 7:00 PM ET

STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, DAZN in Canada

Fresh off their first win of the season, which perhaps took coach Dome Torrent off the hot seat, New York City FC host a surging Chicago Fire side that is unbeaten in its last four Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

NYCFC (1-1-5) defeated D.C. United, 2-0, at Audi Field Sunday with Brazilian forward Heber scoring in his first MLS start and setting up Alexandru Mitrita for his second goal. The Fire (2-2-3) were buoyed by their own new signing with Nicolas Gaitan providing a pair of assists in a 4-1 drubbing of winless Colorado.
