The 2014 New York Cosmos season will be the new Cosmos' second season of existence, playing in the new North American Soccer League. Including the previous franchise, this is the sixteenth season of a club entitled New York Cosmos playing professional soccer in the New York metropolitan area.

The season will follow the Spring / Fall format adopted by the NASL in 2013 with the Spring season starting on April 12 and lasting for 9 games until June 8, while the Fall season will begin the night before the 2014 World Cup Final on July 12 and will last 18 games until November 1. The winner of the Spring championship will again host the 2014 Soccer Bowl.[1]

On April 26, 2014 the New York Cosmos suffered their first Regular Season defeat at Hofstra's Shuart Stadium in their history (Four Seasons; 1972,1973,2013 and 2014). They lost 1 - 0 to the San Antonio Scorpions, who scored 15 minutes into the game.[2]
