Soccer may not be as popular as football in the United States, but it does gain more and more popularity leading to an increased interest in the sport. The New York area has two teams, one of which are the New York Red Bulls.
The New York Red Bulls are a Major League Football team (comparable to “Premier League”) and play their home games at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. The team was known as the MetroStars until it was bought by the Austrian beverage manufacturer, Red Bull, in 2006. Home opener is March 22; regular season runs through October.
The most popular places to get sports tickets for NYC is Ticket Monster. The #1 online ticket marketplace is a great place to buy online tickets, even on short notice. They also have e-tickets available which you can download to your phone or print out at home.
The best thing about Ticket Monster that has made it so popular, is that in contrast to its competitors like Ticket Master or TicketNetwork, they don’t charge any fees and in the case of physical tickets for concerts, do not charge for shipping.

Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey can accommodate up to 25,000 fans, not including the 30 VIP lounges and 1,000 Club seats. That’s not really that big, so you can see pretty well from just about anywhere, and tickets are not that expensive. The seating chart will give you a better sense of where you might want to sit.
I personally like sections 124 – 128. But the best seats are in sections 111 – 108, because that is where the players enter the arena and have their bench.
The arena is located at 600 Cape May Street, Harrison, New Jersey. You can take the train to Newark Penn Station, but then you will still have a 22 minute walk to the arena. Another option is to take the red PATH (Newark – World Trade Center). Don’t get confused: on Saturdays and Sundays, the train only runs between Newark and Journal Street. You can continue on with the blue / orange PATH (Journal Square – 33 Street (via Hoboken).
Budget a little over an hour to get from New York to New Jersey to see the New York Red Bulls. You don’t need to get to the arena earlier than 1 hour before the game.
