NEW YORK (July 19, 2016) – The New York Cosmos announced today a partnership with pop-up mass transit provider Rally to become an Official Ride Share Provider of the New York Cosmos for the 2016 Fall Season, making transport to Shuart Stadium easier and more fun for fans.

Rally is a community mobility platform that offers crowd-powered transportation to and from sporting events, concerts and festivals.

Starting with the match vs. Puerto Rico FC on Saturday, July 30, it will be easy to catch a Rally ride to and from Cosmos games at Shuart Stadium. Fans can book their ride through with a ticket or through the Rally mobile app or website ( Travelers can choose a convenient Rally Point (bus stop) for pick up, and then sit back and relax with a snack, drink and your friends!

“We are excited about this partnership with Rally,” said Cosmos Chief Operating Officer Erik Stover. “We have spoken to fans and more often than not they mention the transport issues with getting out to Shuart Stadium. We believe that this partnership will help make it easier for fans to travel to games and enjoy the day without having to worry about how they will get there and back.”

Rally provides a unique high-end ride share service which is crowd-powered. Their technology connects riders and dynamically routes buses as needed, accommodating groups from Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan and all across North America.

"We’re thrilled to partner with the Cosmos and are excited that they see the potential for their fans to really enjoy using our service,” says Numaan Akram, CEO of Rally. “We know that with this launch we will be able to get more communities to Cosmos games, utilizing our easy to use technology, and help them extend their fan experience beyond the game with an enjoyable travel experience. As we say here at Rally, travel is better together.”
