First Kick 2013: Season Opener, Home Opener Announced

Mike Stobe

Red Bulls to kick off season at Portland with a home opener against D.C.

It looks like the Red Bulls will open their season with two road games, before heading home to the friendly confines of Red Bull Arena.

In a match-up of new-look teams, Thierry Henry & Co. will open Sunday, March 3 against the Portland Timbers in Portland. After either another yet-to-be-announced road game or a week off, the Red Bulls will open their season against D.C. United in a MLS Eastern Conference Semi-Final rematch.

The rest of the list. I'm sure if there's an enterprising Once A Metro reader out there, we could figure out a possible week 2 match-up via process of elimination.
