Sports: NY Red Bulls Games & $50 Ticket and Transport Packages

The last game I attended - October 2011 vs. LA!
Attention all sports fans! While many of you have probably been to a Yankees, Knicks, or Rangers game...there's another great team that's been missing from your life.  A trip to a New York Red Bulls soccer game is a truly special and unique experience. The team plays in a truly extraordinary arena that rivals some of the best in Europe. One of the Red Bull's stars, Thierry Henry, of Arsenal and Barcelona fame has had an illustrious international career and is a true treat to watch. You will find cheering fans of all nationalities (Europeans, Latin Americans, etc) and some really amazing food stands outside the arena before the start of the game.  Believe me, the Brazilian mixed grill stand is well worth the short wait in line and a real bargain! To top all of this off, the Red Bulls have been surging upward in the league rankings so far this season. Lately, they've had a three game win streak and have won all of those games by a differential of three goals or more! They've moved up from 8th place to 4th place in the rankings and it looks like they will continue to rise. You can read more on their latest performance HERE

Upcoming Games
: Saturday 4/14 vs. San Jose Earthquake, Saturday 4/28 vs. New England Revolution

Getting There: Although New Jersey may sound far away to some, the arena is actually only about a 30 minute ride from Manhattan via public transportation AND all you need is your MetroCard! Simply take any Newark-bound PATH train and swipe your MetroCard (it's only $2 each way - cheaper than a regular MTA ride!).  The arena is located within just a couple blocks of the Harrison, NJ stop on the PATH. There's usually a good crowd going to the game from NYC, so just join them - you can't miss the stadium from the station!

If the PATH is not convenient for you or if you'd prefer to travel by bus, there is also another fantastic option to get to the game:

Upper 90, New York's premier soccer store, has arranged special packages for several of the upcoming games through its "NYC Bus Stampede" program.  The buses depart 2 hours prior to the game from Upper 90's locations in Manhattan's Upper West Side and in Downtown Brooklyn.  There will also be some sort of rally event at each store starting 1 hour prior to bus departure! With your purchase of a $50 package / $180 if you get the family 4-pack, you will receive round-trip bus transport, a Lower Level game ticket, and either a giveaway like a shirt or soccer ball or a raffle entry (see the specific game you wish to attend for details).  All tickets will be in Section 116, so if you make any friends on the bus you'll be sure to see them at the game! You can purchase Upper 90's packages up until noon of game day by clicking HERE.
