New York City Football Club announced on Thursday that it will move its Major League Soccer regular-season finale on Oct. 22 from Yankee Stadium to Citi Field.

NYCFC had been scheduled to host the Columbus Crew at Yankee Stadium at 4 p.m. The game time will remain the same at Citi Field.

The Yankees are scheduled to host Games 3, 4 and 5 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. According to NYCFC, the ALCS schedule does not leave enough time to convert Yankee Stadium to host soccer.

According to NYCFC, all fans with tickets to the Oct. 22 game at Yankee Stadium will receive an email with ticketing options. Fans also will receive access to a special pre-sale to secure tickets to the match at Citi Field at a discounted rate. Newsday staff
