In a whirlwind 24 hours for both the New York Cosmos and the North American Soccer League, an outpouring of support has emerged from the team’s most vibrant supporters group.

The Five Points, the premier Cosmos supporters group, has enjoyed a hot and cold relationship with the club over the years. Recently, they have been vocal about now-minority owner Seamus O’Brien addressing the various issues surrounding the club.

Despite that, it appears the fans are ready to embrace the change in the club, including the introduction of Rocco Commisso as team owner.

From the Five Points:

As forever true supporters of the NEW YORK COSMOS, the 5 POINTS are exuberant at the fact that today our club has announced that they will be back to defend their North American Soccer League championship in 2017! We are excited and eager to sit down with new ownership and aide in the rebuilding of our club and we look forward with great anticipation to opening day of the 2017 season when the NEW YORK COSMOS take to the pitch. Once again the 5 POINTS will stand along side them and support them with the passion that only we can bring to US Soccer!
