The New York Yankees had to reschedule one of their games due to rain, meaning the stadium's other tenant needed to find a new match location.

New York City FC has announced the club's league home game against the Houston Dynamo on Sept. 23 has been relocated from Yankee Stadium to Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, Conn.

The match's relocation to Connecticut is due to a rescheduled game of the New York Yankees, who share Yankee Stadium with NYCFC.
