Despite losing to the New England Revolution, New York City FC clinched a historic result. In their fifth year, NYCFC is the regular season Eastern Conference champion. The team led by Domenec Torrent clinched first place in the Eastern Conference and qualified for Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League for the first time in the history of the club.

New York City FC collected 61 points in 33 games, another club record. They have an opportunity to increase that total this weekend in Philadelphia.
