The league released it's 2014 schedule today and, at first blush, it's not great for the Red Bulls.
This season, the Red Bulls had the advantage of playing both those teams at home twice. Obviously, that switches for 2014, but in 2013 those games were on weekends, allowing the Red Bulls to capitalize on the rivalry to sell tickets and allows a solid base for traveling support. That made for a great atmosphere, especially given the teams' proximity to each other. That won't happen in 2014, unfortunately.
(It's also worth noting the league will take a break for the World Cup group stage.)
