The New York Cosmos are making a comeback to the MLS.

On July 12, the Cosmos were introduced as the 10th franchise, returning to play in the North American Soccer League (NASL) in 2013.  At the same press conference, they made it no secret of the fact that their aspirations were to return to the top flight of American soccer.
