New York City’s World Cup: Cosmos Copa

Every year, 36 ‘national teams’, comprised of the diverse communities that make up New York City, come together to play in a World Cup tournament called Cosmos Copa. Organized by the New York Cosmos and heralded as a one-of-a-kind event that showcases the best of NYC, this grassroots tournament attracts a huge following in a spectacular setting.

We’ve seen the tournament first hand, and there really is nothing like watching the fittest eleven men in New York City’s Japanese community go toe-to-toe with New York’s Colombian brothers. There are also few events in the States world able to provide so much cultural diversity while maintaining the peace and a common goal. The film capturing America’s coolest amateur tournament drops next week, and if the the trailer above is anything to go by, we’ll have our popcorn/tapas/Peroni/empanadas/Pão de queijo ready. [Info on Cosmos Copa.
