After flying into Newark Airport from Orlando, the full squad headed straight to Nike Town on 57th St,

This visit represented the first time a full squad from a football team has visited a Nike store.

What a welcome to the Big Apple! The players were greeted by over 500 fans, further underlining the Club's outstanding support in the States.

The players split into four groups - one group helped Nike Town staff print names and numbers for fans purchasing our new kit, another group mixed with fans in a Nike product area, there was a chance for fans to look at SPVRS - the Virtual and Augmented Reality technology that takes users inside the Club’s new stadium before it is built - and mix with the players on a mini-basketball court and a signing session.
