Red Bulls v. Inter Miami CF

The New York Red Bulls will be taking on the Club Internacional de Futbol Miami (Inter Miami CF) at the Red Bulls Arena in Harrison NJ on Saturday. August 27, 2022, at 7 p.m. Literally, there will be fireworks at the Red Bulls Arena as these two rivals meet. The New York Red Bulls will try to avenge a May loss to Inter Miami CF. 

In the last three games between the Red Bulls and Inter Miami CF, the Red Bulls won 2 out of 3 games but lost their last game 2 to 0 at Miami.  The Red Bulls won at home against Inter Miami CF in October of 2021 by a score of 1 to 0.  In September of 2021, the Red Bulls won 4 to 0 in Miami’s home stadium.  Inter Miami CF is looking to continue its winning streak and avenge its 2021 loss at home. Inter MIami wants the Red Bulls team to know the feeling of a loss at home.

The Inter Miami CF is based in Orlando, Florida.  Just kidding, we wanted to make sure you were awake reading this.  Inter Miami CF is based in the Miami metropolitan area. The Inter Miami CF franchise began its play in the 2020 Major League Soccer season but not before the postponement of its inaugural game due to the nationwide Covid lockdown. The team did resume play in August of 2020 as the State of Florida opened up sports venues. Inter Miami CF won its inaugural game 3 to 2 against its in-state rival, you guessed it, the Orlando City SC.

Inter Miami CF has a stadium sponsor AutoNation who has naming rights to the stadium.  AutoNation has a breast cancer awareness campaign entitled Drive Pink.  AutoNation named Inter Miami CF’s stadium, DRV PNK Stadium, an abbreviation of Drive Pink.  What do you think of that abbreviated naming choice?  Let us know on the Your Harrison Community Discussion Board.

The DRV PNK Stadium has a maximum capacity of 18,000 seats versus the Red Bulls Arena with 25,000 seats.  If you do the math that is 7,000 seats less. Like the Red Bulls Arena, the DRV PNK Stadium was built to be a soccer-specific stadium. 

The DRV PNK Stadium is also home to the team’s youth academy and training grounds.  The Red Bulls Soccer team does not appear to have a youth academy and if they do have one it is not located in the Red Bulls Arena.  Since West Hudson (Harrison, East Newark, and Kearny) are known for their Soccer prowess, it is a good question to ask why local youth should not have a Red Bulls Soccer Academy that they could walk to.  If we missed the Red Bulls Soccer Academy announcement please let us know on our Community Discussion Board.

Special Giveaway

The Red Bulls will be giving away to the first 7500 fans a fanny pack. It is not a Marvel Super Hero Tyler Adams x Captain America Bobblehead or limited edition Marvel Super Hero poster but there will also be  90’s Fireworks at the Stadium we imagine during and after the game.  There were no details given on the extent of the Fireworks  We are not sure what ’90 Fireworks is all about but we are sure to learn soon.
