  • Click joins New York City FC with more than twenty-five years of experience as a sports management professional. He spent 14 years in minor league baseball as well as several years in the NBA. Most recently, he served as Chief Executive Officer at Derby County Football Club, Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer for Manchester City Football Club and Managing Director of City Football Marketing.

    Glick had this to say:

    "“This role for this Club is arguably one of the most exciting in soccer right now.  I am thrilled to take up the responsibility and the challenge. After two years of laying the foundations for this inaugural season and beyond, we have an incredibly talented team both on and off the pitch. I very much look forward to playing my part in leading and supporting them as we embark on the next and most important stage of our development.”"

    The club also confirms that Tim Pernetti will leave the organization after the first game of the 2015 MLS season. What is the reason for the change so close to the clubs inaugural season? Pernetti committed to a new job. He is becoming the President of Multimedia for WME/IMG’s college business.

    "“With college sports being my true passion and such a core part of my make-up, this awesome opportunity was impossible to refuse, particularly at this natural exit point as New York City FC embarks on the next stage of its development,” Pernetti said in a statement. “It has been my honor and a true privilege to work with the best in the soccer business and to be part of building the foundation of New York City FC. I will be a fan for life.”"

    In regards to both announcements, Marty Edelman, Vice Chairman of New York City FC said:

    "“Tom Glick’s appointment as President of New York City FC is a huge boost for the Club.  The creation of the role is a necessary next step in the Club’s evolution.  In Tom, we have a leader with significant experience in soccer as well as in US Sports and Sports business, and one who is perfectly equipped to help the Club fulfill its full potential both on and off the field.”We would also like to thank Tim for all of his hard work as Chief Business Officer for the last 18 months. He has played a key role in preparing New York City FC for this inaugural season and the many seasons ahead.  He leaves the Club with our very best wishes and will no doubt be a huge asset in his new role.”"

    There seems to be just too many things happening with New York City FC. First the Frank Lampard fiasco and now this. They need to get a handle on these situations and get them figured out. It is becoming more of an embarrassment, more than anything. So far, the expansion club to the south is winning the off season.
