Both teams are neck-and-neck in the MLS standings, with identical records of 8 wins, 12 losses, and 10 ties. The Red Bulls currently sit at #11, while the Chicago Fire is just a notch below at #12, making this match a crucial battle for both sides as they look to improve their positions in the league table.

The next home game for the Red Bulls is scheduled for Saturday, October 7, 2023, against the Toronto FC soccer club, marking the end of their regular-season home games. 

Adding to the anticipation is a traffic bulletin issued by the Harrison Police Department concerning potential traffic disruptions. The Jackson Street Bridge, which is the closest bridge to the Red Bulls Arena, experienced mechanical issues on Thursday. The bridge remained closed to vehicular traffic due to an undisclosed mechanical issue, which was eventually resolved by the bridge crew after a significant delay. Fortunately, the bridge's opening did not coincide with rush hour, and there was no event at the Red Bulls Arena at the time, preventing a larger traffic snarl.

However, attendees are advised to plan their travel accordingly and stay updated on the traffic situation, especially concerning the Jackson Street Bridge, to ensure a smooth journey to and from the arena.
