New start time for second leg of 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Final

You will need to wait just a wee bit longer than originally anticipated to see the New York Red Bulls play Atlanta United at Red Bull Arena.

The second leg of the 2018 MLS Eastern Conference final was originally scheduled to kick-off at 7:00 pm, Eastern, on November 29. It is now scheduled to kick-off at 7:30 pm, Eastern.

The game will still take place on a Thursday night.

Life throws up more significant complications than a 30-minute adjustment to the start of a soccer match, but the change will doubtless be inconvenient to some - and entirely irrelevant to many.

Still, given the fact televised MLS games almost always start a little later than advertised, the adjustment to the kick-off time suggests a game that was likely to get underway a little after 7:00 pm will now commence a lot closer to 8:00 pm than originally expected.

Forewarned is forearmed, RBNY fans. Enjoy the extra 30 minutes of pre-gaming.

The first leg of the Eastern Conference final series between New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United is scheduled for Sunday, November 25. Kick-off time for that game remains scheduled for 5:00 pm, Eastern.
