Red Bull Arena

You don’t have to be a soccer fan to enjoy the excitement of a match. Soccer fans are serious, and there’s a certain electricity that collects in the air when thousands of them converge in one place, decked out in their team’s colors and primed for a close game. And if you are a soccer fan, you know that there are few venues this side of the Atlantic that are as atmospherically thrilling as Red Bull Arena.

If you don’t live in the area, getting to the game can sometimes feel like a logistical nightmare; parking alone can be time-consuming and expensive. On the other hand, for locals at Steel Works’ no-fee Harrison rentals, getting to Red Bull Arena is as simple as leaving your luxury apartment and walking a few blocks. So, while others are circling the garage in search of a spot, you’ll be settling into your seat or grabbing a snack, joining thousands of fans as they watch the emerald green pitch in anticipation.

Just last year, CBS New York called Red Bull Arena “The Best Venue You Don’t Know About,” though by now, you probably do. If we’re talking about the arena’s design alone, there are many noteworthy features, but chief among them may be the ceiling. It’s only a partial ceiling, made of translucent Teflon that lets in the light but shields the fans from precipitation. Its circular design curves just over the seats, leaving only the field open to the elements. It is, after all, more fun to watch the players go sloshing after the ball through the rain or snow while you stay completely dry.

The stadium is also unique in that it has one of the largest capacities in the country among soccer stadiums, just behind the LA Galaxy’s StubHub Center and the Orlando City Stadium. So, when the stadium is packed, it’s an energetic & lively experience, and one that can’t be matched, even when NYCFC plays in Yankee Stadium.

The stadium is a fun place to be, and the team is fun to watch. The New York Red Bulls had a thrilling season, and, in fact, they won their last game against a vaunted Toronto FC squad that features international stars like Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco. The Red Bulls’ victory wasn’t enough to keep their season alive because Toronto advanced by the slimmest of margins, on a rarely utilized away-goals tiebreaker. There are no moral victories in sports, of course, but after barely qualifying for the playoffs in the first place, the Red Bulls’ near-miss against the consensus league-best Toronto team was a fitting end for a scrappy team that battled hard all year. Their youthful roster is stocked with homegrown players, including Tyler Adams, who at only eighteen years old will soon be playing with the US National Team against the team widely regarded as the best in the world: Portugal.

And if you’re not a soccer fan, fair enough—the arena also hosts concerts and other events. Since the stadium’s opening, bands such as DNCE and Dispatch have played to a packed house. After recently being awarded the JD Power “Best in Fan Experience” award out of all venues in the New York metro area, the arena is likely to attract more acts next summer. Keep an eye out for us next season – we’ll be at the Steel Works tent on Red Bulls Boulevard before a handful of home games!
