In a joint statement today, Harrison Mayor Raymond J. McDonough and Red Bulls GM Erik Stover announced a $25,000 donation to the Town of Harrison in support of the Town's efforts to construct over 2,000 feet of protective fencing along Frank E. Rogers Boulevard.  The project, already underway, will replace the temporary fencing with  permanent, themed fencing and bring a "new look" to the Boulevard.                     
 
Mayor McDonough praised the Red Bulls for their ongoing commitment to Harrison, its growth, and progress. “This is a true partnership in every sense of the word,” said McDonough. “I am proud to be part of the stadium project and the team."

Stover again stressed the Red Bulls’ desire to present the ultimate fan experience both on and off the pitch. "This safety fencing will serve to protect our fans on game day as well as add a decorative touch to the Boulevard. It will also serve to protect all of the Harrison community on non game days.”

Red Bull New York opened the 25,000-seat Red Bull Arena in March 2010 in Harrison, NJ.
