Orlando City SC v New York City FC at Red Bulls Arena on Sun. Oct. 2nd 2022

Orlando City Soccer Club Exploria Stadium

On Sunday, October 2, 2022, at 1 p.m. in the Red Bulls Stadium, New York City FC Soccer Club will be facing off against the Orlando City Soccer Club.

The New York City FC Soccer Club usually plays at Yankee Stadium but has played at the Red Bulls Stadium on occasion.  This year there was even a surprise soccer game between DC United and the New York City Soccer Club where the New York City FC played at the Red Bulls Arena in Harrison NJ even though their home stadium at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York was available.  You can read about it in our article entitled DC United Surprise Game with New York FC.  We have not figured out what that was all about.

It may have to do with the fact that Yankee Stadium is not a CONCACAF-approved venue.   The Red Bulls Stadium is approved and has been used by the New York City FC Soccer Club during the Covid pandemic when New York’s Yankee Stadium was not available.

The Orlando City Soccer Club’s home is in Orlando Florida.   It is a member of the Major League Soccer (MLS) since 2015.  Orlando City SC's home stadium is the Exploria Stadium in Downtown Orlando which it owns and operates.  Exploria Stadium is a soccer-specific venue and can hold up to 25,000 fans. The Red Bulls Stadium can hold the same amount of fans.

The Harrison Police Department has not released to our knowledge an advisory.  It is not clear whether VIP-motivated Parking restrictions will be imposed on streets usually designated No Parking Zones for New York Red Bulls Soccer games.
