Riviera Maya - After a short bus ride to Newark Airport, a four-hour plane ride and a 90-minute bus ride to the resort, the Red Bulls finally arrived safe and sound in Mexico late Monday afternoon. For the next two weeks, players and personnel will call this resort home as they aim to prepare for the upcoming season with a series of two-a-day training sessions and preseason matches.
Outside of organizing two teams meals, it was a pretty clean slate of events Monday evening as the guys just looked to get situated and settled down after a long day of travel. It's back to business as usual Tuesday when the team resumes typical training sessions on a pitch about 20 minutes from the resort, followed later in the afternoon by a strength and stability regimen.
The first meeting of the three-game preseason is set for Monday, Feb. 6. We'll be sure to keep you posted right here on the Red Bulls' preseason blog, as well as on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
More updates on the way soon!
