THE BRONX - Businesses are gearing up for the New York City Football Club's inaugural home game at Yankee Stadium.

Business owners in the area say they couldn't be happier for the season to begin Sunday. They say they're hoping the big crowds will bring more foot traffic to their businesses at a time that's usually slow.

Soccer fans agree, and say they can't wait to go to games nearby instead of traveling to New Jersey to see the Red Bulls play.

About 33,000 tickets have already been sold.

The NYFC will call Yankee Stadium home for the next three years.
