The New York Red Bulls will take on the Atlanta United FC in an eagerly anticipated game at the Red Bulls Arena in Harrison Nj on Thursday June 30, 2022. A traffic advisory has been issued by the Harrison Police Department making residents aware of increased traffic in Harrison as a result of the soccer game. Eleven thousand tickets have been sold to date so the stadium is expected to be half full, but with such an exciting match up it is sure to be one of the larger regular season crowds in the Red Bull Arena this year. Although the Harrison Path Station is located very close to the stadium, most fans take their car and park in the Harrison Parking Garages rather than take the Path to the game. 

Buy Tickets at Ticketmaster for the Game.  The Game is also Red Bulls Pride Night which will have pre-game activities for fans and throughout the game.

The Atlanta United FC was founded in 2014 and began play in the Major League Soccer league in 2017.  The Atlanta United plays home games at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Atlanta United FC soccer team is owned by Arthur Blank co-founder of The Home Depot warehouse store. Arthur Blank is also the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Football team who also plays at the Mercedes Benz Stadium. Coincidentally , the Atlanta Falcons Football team will be celebrating it 56 year anniversary on game day, June 30, 2022, having been founded on June 30, 1965.

The Harrison Police Department is advising fans to arrive early before 5 p.m.rush hour. They also advise fans to take public transportation if possible.
