The Only NY & Friends Stanton Street Invitational was a 1 day soccer tournament to help raise money for the betterment of youth athletic programs in New York City. The event took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon on Baruch Playground located in the Lower East Side with an eclectic mix of 14 teams that competed for the championship title. Competitive play ran through the day as teams were slowly knocked out leaving Two Bridges FC as the inaugural Stanton Street Invitational champions.
Premiered at the Stanton Street Invitational, Only NY created a limited edition soccer jersey in partnership with Bowery Football Club taking deep inspiration from the classic football kits from the 1980’s and 90’s with loud colors and unmistakable patterns. The polyester jersey is marked with Only NY and Bowery FC logo graphics alongside the club’s badge and sponsor, Grailed, and is complimented with signature “97" numbering
