Some things to look out for this season...

  • For the first time in five seasons, the Red Bulls are starting the season at home! Despite this, four of RBNY's first seven matches are on the road.
  • Four of the five Western Conference opponents that the Red Bulls play at home made the playoffs last season (SKC, FCD, SEA, POR).
  • The reason there are only three games played in June is because of a two-week break to accomodate the Copa America.
  • The Red Bulls end the season with a string of home matches, playing four of their last six at Red Bull Arena against Eastern Conference opponents (DC, IMFC, PHI, COL).
