Soccer star David Villa is gifting one lucky fan a pair of signed boots to promote Queensboro FC, the new pro soccer team that will begin playing in Queens in 2021.

Villa, a member of the Spanish national team that won the 2010 FIFA World Cup, will personally give the boots to the sweepstakes winner at a fan event on Feb. 5.

The Spanish player founded the borough’s own professional soccer team, Queensboro FC together with Jonathan Krane, a New York City-based asset manager, in November.

“With only a few weeks left to go, we hope all soccer fans in Queens will enter for the chance to win this pair of boots signed by World Cup winner David Villa,” Kane, principal owner of Queensboro FC, said. “We are excited to continue growing our fan base here in Queens and to bring the world’s game to the world’s borough.”

Fans can enter the Queensboro FC sweepstakes online for a chance to win the signed pair of boots until Feb. 3.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
