One thing that fans of the New York Red Bulls have been wanting for years is english radio coverage of the team's matches on the radio. This year, the team has taken the step to stream their own call of matches online to start meeting that request. While Red Bulls fans won't have terrestrial radio coverage anytime soon, the Red Bulls are again filling in the gap.
On Wednesday night, Ali Curtis, Jesse Marsch, and Marc de Grandpre were on stage for what the team dubbed "Town Hall 2.0". One person in attendance asked about possible radio coverage, and in the response, de Grandprelet it be known that the Red Bulls would be launching a 24 hour, 7 day a week TuneIn channel.
Details of the channel are not known at this time, and the team has not yet responded to an inquiry by Once a Metro for information. One would assume the channel would include radio calls of the team's MLS & USL (New York Red Bulls II) matches, as well as some form of original programming.
Regardless of details, the move to TuneIn is a big one, as the team stated that no other MLS team has an online radio station, and thus will be leading the way. It also signals the team's commitment to having more coverage, even if they must provide it themselves.
What do you think of the move to create a TuneIn channel? Let us know in the comments below.
