THANK YOU FANS

Thank you to all of our fans for your support throughout the season. You cheered, you sang, you danced and you rooted the Red Bulls on through good and bad, highs and lows. Now, as the team looks to make a run into the postseason, we’d like to give back for all that you’ve given us this season.

The Oct. 20 match against Sporting Kansas City is Fan Appreciation Night. Outside of the excitement building on the pitch, we’ll also have plenty of prizes for fans before, during and after the match as a way of thanking you all for showing support for New York's team.

Anyone in attendance for the match is automatically entered into the prize drawings, ranging from Red Bulls merchandise, special, one-of-a-kind experiences and much more. Additional prizes will be available through Twitter all week leading up to the match (follow us! @NewYorkRedBulls), on FourSquare leading up to kick off and in the Interactive Zone.

Keep an eye on the video board throughout the match to see if you have been randomly selected as a winner of one of our many great giveaways. Winners can claim their prizes inside Gate B at the Guest Services window.

Thanks again for a great regular season. Now let’s get those three points and take this show into the postseason!
