Q) For those that have never been to Red Bull Arena, what should they know?
A) Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ is the premiere soccer venue in all of North America. It’s the proud home of the New York Red Bulls (of Major League Soccer) who have qualified for the 2016 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs starting in October. The venue has also hosted multiple world-class soccer teams & events including both the United States Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams, Chelsea Football Club and the 2011 MLS All-Star Game featuring Manchester United.
We are now aggressively pursuing the opportunity to host other events at Red Bull Arena. Years ago we held our first concert at the venue with a band called Dispatch and we have begun to make a big push to be a premier destination for concerts and live entertainment.
