Product Description

RED BULL ARENA (Harrison)

AIR-NY-2066

New York Red Bulls (MLS) (2010-Present)

Red Bull Arena is a soccer-specific stadium located in Harrison, New Jersey, a suburb of Newark. It is the home of the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer and has 25,000 seats, all covered by a translucent roof that protects fans from the elements.

The construction project was beset with delays. The original plan, announced on July 1, 2004, was to move the MetroStars (as the New York Red Bulls was known at the time) from their home at Giants Stadium by the beginning of the 2006 season. Negotiations between MLS and the state of New Jersey dragged on until an agreement was announced on August 5, 2005, for the MetroStars to build and complete construction of a new dedicated soccer facility for the 2007 season. Concerns about environmental clean-up at the selected site forced another delay. Additionally, though the groundbreaking took place September 19, 2006 and construction was set for November 2007, that was delayed by one month when Red Bull bought out the MetroStars club from Anschutz Entertainment Group, changing the club's name in the process. After projections of opening during the 2008, and then the 2009 season, on January 23, 2009, it was announced that the arena opening would be delayed until 2010.

Unused 4" x 6" continental size chrome.
