The New York Red Bulls welcome Charlotte FC at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ on Wednesday, June 21, 2023. The action kicks off at 7:30 p.m. as part of an intriguing midweek Major League Soccer (MLS)  schedule. This match-up marks the second time these two Eastern Conference rivals meet this season, with their previous encounter ending in a tightly contested 1-1 draw.

Charlotte FC has been in decent form this season, boasting a record of six wins, eight losses, and four ties. Their performance has placed them in the eighth spot in the Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference. On the other hand, the Red Bulls have experienced a somewhat challenging campaign with four wins, six losses, and seven ties, putting them 10th in the conference standings.

Charlotte FC A Young Team

Based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Charlotte FC is a relatively new face on the MLS scene. The franchise was founded by David Tepper towards the end of 2019, but their inaugural season was delayed until 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Tepper, who also owns the NFL's Carolina Panthers, has ensured that both his teams share the impressive Bank of America Stadium. For soccer matches, the stadium capacity is reduced to 38,000, from its full NFL capacity of 74,479.

Home Court Advantage

New York Red Bulls will enjoy home advantage at the Red Bull Arena, with the Charlotte-based team facing a ten-hour journey to Harrison, NJ. The last matches between these two teams have drawn crowds of around 15,000, an impressive turnout given the weeknight scheduling.

Given the expected attendance and the usual commuter traffic, the Harrison Police Department is likely to issue a Traffic Bulletin. Soccer fans and regular commuters should prepare for potential traffic delays on the evening of the match.
