Once a Metro has learned from the Red Bulls front office that tickets to the International Champions Cup match between Porto FC and RBNY will be offered as part of 2015 season ticket packages.
The 27-time Portuguese domestic league champions will face the 2013 MLS Supporters' Shield winners at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 26th, in Harrison, New Jersey.
Another ICC face-off, Paris Saint-Germain versus Fiorentina (July 21, 8:30 p.m. EST), are also included for season ticket holders.
While the Chelsea-Red Bulls match on July 22nd isn't free, a window will be made available exclusively for season-ticket holders to purchase pre-sale seats.
According to the ICC that window will open in May, consumers are asked to sign up early for the pre-sale.
Last July, the Red Bulls hosted Arsenal in a friendly match and that game was included in last year's season-ticket package. Porto does not have the same American fan base draw as the London club, but this and the Chelsea match should draw a wide range of European football fans from the area. Red Bulls fans hoping to re-sell their tickets should still be able to do so.
