The Islanders’ New Home Field

Moving Along

Finally, after a dozen years playing in woebegone Skyline Sports Complex, the City Islanders of the United Soccer League are moving across the macadam to play 10 home games this season at the Senators’ ballpark on the island.

The games will be bunched together in pairs from April to August with new sod being laid atop the baseball field five times during the season.

The Islanders’ six other home games in 2016 will be played at Lancaster’s Clipper Magazine Stadium, another baseball-first facility where the Islanders have played before and drawn well there.

The Islanders could receive a nice bump in attendance by moving into the Senators’ amenity-filled facility that dwarfs, literally and figuratively, the dreary environment they are leaving behind.
