On a spirited evening slated for Saturday, May 4, 2024, the NJ/NY Gotham FC will host a special celebration in honor of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, as they face off against the North Carolina Courage at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ. The game, which begins at 7:30 PM, is not just a regular season matchup but also a platform to honor the AANHPI communities under this year’s theme, Advancing Leaders Through Innovation.


Honoring Heritage and Innovation

AANHPI Heritage Month, celebrated in May, recognizes the contributions and influence of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. The month was officially designated by Congress in 1992, following a decade of increasing recognition that began with a week-long celebration. The 2024 theme, Advancing Leaders Through Innovation, highlights the dynamic role of AANHPI leaders in business, technology, education, and other fields, driving progress through creative and innovative approaches.

The Excitement of the Game

As Gotham FC prepares to welcome fans and celebrate this significant month, the match against North Carolina Courage is poised to be a thrilling encounter. North Carolina Courage, hailing from WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC, bring their competitive spirit from a stadium capable of hosting approximately 10,000 fans. This team has consistently demonstrated resilience and skill, making them formidable opponents on the soccer field.

Practical Information for Attendees

Fans planning to attend the game should be aware of the traffic and parking situations. Although the traffic for Gotham FC games is generally more manageable than during international matches or Red Bull’s home games, it is advisable to stay updated with the Harrison Police Department’s Traffic and Parking Bulletin for any advisories or special directions on the day of the game.

As the community gears up for this exciting match and celebration, both the action on the field and the recognition of the AANHPI communities' contributions will provide a full evening of entertainment and reflection. Whether you're a soccer aficionado or someone looking to partake in a meaningful celebration of heritage and leadership, May 4th at Red Bull Arena promises to deliver on all fronts.
