Both teams were comprised of young men from the Muslim Youth Center in Bensonhurst. 

“NYPD United” is a citywide soccer league for teenagers run by NYPD Community Affairs. The league is open to youth ages 14 to 19. Saturday’s championship preceded the league’s summer season, which kicks off June 21. Approximately 140 city youth have signed up to play.
