The New York Red Bulls are the underdog this Wednesday, July 12, 2023, as league leaders FC Cincinnati prepare to take on the 10th-ranked Red Bulls at the Red Bull Arena. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m., a perfect setting for an evening of exciting Major League Soccer (MLS) action. Harrison residents are feeling “Red Bull Arena game fatigue” with a very busy schedule at the Red Bulls Arena.  This past weekend was a back-to-back Soccer weekend with games on Saturday and Sunday. On Independence Day July 4, 2023, there was a Concacaf doubleheader with four international teams playing and filling the stadium.  The July 4th game was preceded by a back-to-back weekend with the Red Bulls and Gotham FC games on Saturday, June 24th, and Sunday, June 24th respectively.

FC Cincinnati Formidable Force

Currently sitting pretty at the top of the MLS table with 13 wins, 2 losses, and 8 ties, FC Cincinnati has proven itself a formidable force this season. Their combination of tactical prowess, individual skill, and unyielding team spirit has propelled them to the number one spot. On the contrary, the New York Red Bulls have had a turbulent season so far, with their record standing at 6 wins, 7 losses, and 8 ties.

FC Cincinnati, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is well-known for its passionate fan base. This lively support extends from their spectacular home ground, the TQL Stadium, all the way to away games. The TQL Stadium, a state-of-the-art venue with a capacity of 26,000 fans, has become a fortress for FC Cincinnati. It inspires its players to deliver exceptional performances on both home turf and away. As they step into the Red Bull Arena, Cincinnati's players will undoubtedly strive to bring that home-ground spirit with them.

Planning Board Meeting Gridlock

The Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ, will welcome the wave of fans anticipating this competitive matchup. However, there is a potential logistical hiccup that fans, residents, and local authorities should be aware of. The Harrison Planning Board meeting at the Town Hall, originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 26, 2023, has been moved to coincide with the game day. This overlap might affect the timely arrival of Board Members, applicants, and the public to the meeting due to the influx of soccer fans and commuters traveling through and into Harrison causing gridlock and traffic jams.

Given the potential traffic scenario, it's worth noting that the Harrison Police Department has not yet issued a Traffic Bulletin on its Facebook page or the Town of Harrison website. Fans and residents are advised to check these platforms regularly for updates and to plan their travel arrangements accordingly to avoid any possible congestion or delays.

For those wishing to be part of this thrilling MLS encounter, tickets are still available and can be purchased from Ticketmaster. Be part of the mid-season drama as FC Cincinnati aims to maintain their lead while the New York Red Bulls strive to climb up the ranks. This game is not just a celebration of soccer, but also an opportunity to experience the camaraderie, thrill, and spectacle that Major League Soccer continues to offer. It's definitely a date to mark on your Red Bull Arena soccer calendar!
