First point of the season for New York City FC as they draw 1-1 against Chicago Fire. City entered the field with the right attitude, with the attitude of a team that wanted to bring home the victory at all costs. Three changes made by Cushing compared to Nashville's season debut. James Sands was immediately on the field, having just returned from his loan to Rangers. Andres Jasson replaced Justin Haak and Mitja Ilenič marked his full debut in place of the injured Tayvon Gray. Santiago Rodríguez, who just signed his contract with NYCFC, was on the bench.

The start of the game was good for both teams who had the chance to unlock the match. In the 39th minute Pereira took care of giving New York the lead with a precise shot into the corner. Deserved an advantage for Cushing's team who continue to push in search of the second goal. Several opportunities were created but not realized by the Boys in Blue. Chicago, on the other hand, manages to materialize with Herbers the opportunity that happens to them 15 minutes from the end, also thanks to a detour by the City defense that deceives Barraza. In the final, there were no chances for either side, with the two teams returning home with a point each.
