The New York Generals were a soccer team based out of New York that played in the non-FIFA sanctioned National Professional Soccer League. Their home field was Yankee Stadium. Their colors were gold and green (similar to the New York Cosmos colors) and they were owned by RKO General, then owners of WOR-TV.

Following the 1967 season, the NPSL merged with the United Soccer Association to form the North American Soccer League. It would be the Generals who would represent New York in the NASL in 1968, as the USA's New York Skyliners folded. The Generals played only that 1968 NASL season before closing up shop.
