A fascinating inside look at the challenges of starting a professional sports franchise from scratch, WIN! is the story of the inaugural 2015 season of New York City FC. A joint venture between English Premier League's Manchester City and the New York Yankees, the team establishes world famous Yankee Stadium as its first home and builds a roster that includes the most decorated, international trio in MLS history - David Villa from Spain, Frank Lampard from England, and Andrea Pirlo from Italy - who together have accumulated two World Cups, two European Cups, four Champions League trophies and 32 domestic trophies. Even with such talent, competing against established MLS Clubs, learning to operate within MLS, and winning over the hearts of New Yorkers will be an uphill battle.
Tracking New York City FC from the day of its announcement through the construction of its roster and the course of its first season, Webster follows the stories not just of the team's players, but the coaching staff and executives tasked with building the Club, including Sporting Director, and former U.S. National Team captain, Claudio Reyna and the Club's first-ever head coach, Jason Kreis.
