About Red Bull Arena
Red Bull Arena
Just seven miles from lower Manhattan and located on the waterfront of Harrison, New Jersey, Red Bull Arena is one of the three biggest soccer-specific stadiums in the entirety of Major League Soccer. With its modern design, amenities, and location, there’s no better place for the all-star professional soccer team that shares its name!
History of Red Bull Arena
If you think four years to construct a stadium is a long time, you’re not wrong – red tape held up the planning and construction of Red Bull Arena for a lot longer than necessary. Yet from the first-day construction broke ground in 2006 to the first day it opened its doors to the public in 2010, Red Bull Arena joins a long line of professional sports arenas located in New Jersey that host New York teams. Two of NY’s NFL teams, the Giants and the Jets, have played home games in Jersey for what feels like forever, so it’s only natural that the state’s professional soccer team would get in on the action as well.
What’s So Special About Red Bull Arena Events?
Red Bull Arena features some really striking design elements that make it stand out. It has a partially-transparent fiberglass roof canopy that wraps around all four sides that shields its 25,000-seat capacity bleachers from the elements while still letting in light. Those seats are raked at a 33-degree angle to keep give you the best view of the game at all times, and the galvanized metal used in their construction helps you make some noise in support of your favorite MLS team!
