The 2013 New York Cosmos season is the first season of the new team playing in the new North American Soccer League. Including the previous franchise, this is the sixteenth season of the club playing professional soccer in the New York metropolitan area. This year, the team earned the league's Fall Championship, and became the 2013 NASL Champions by winning the Soccer Bowl.

Background[edit]

The second version of the New York Cosmos came into existence during the summer of 2010. During the 2011 and 2012 calendar years, several youth teams and one tributary team under the Cosmos name played in an array of matches. The last season an organized team under the name "New York Cosmos" competed in any sort of professional level is 1985, nearly thirty years ago, when the Cosmos operated as an independent soccer club.
