New York Red Bulls Statement on MLS Season

We are in full support of Major League Soccer’s decision to further suspend the season. We continue to work closely with MLS, United Soccer League, state and local officials, and health authorities to ensure we remain on the best course of action for fans, players, staff, and our general community.

We are following the recommendations to stay home and limit social interactions and urge our community to join us in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

 I have tickets for an upcoming match. What should I do?

September 11, 2020: Major League Soccer has announced the 2020 regular season schedule through the end of September. From September 18-27, each MLS club will compete in three regular season matches. Additional 2020 MLS regular season matches will be announced pending further developments regarding travel protocols. At this time, local public health guidelines do not permit the New York Red Bulls to host fans at Red Bull Arena. Ticket policies for tickets purchased from the New York Red Bulls for impacted matches have been or will soon be shared with ticket holders via email. If you have questions, please reach out at 877.727.6223 or e-mail at

 What are the Red Bulls doing to monitor the situation?

The organization has been continuously monitoring developments surrounding Covid-19 in the New York/New Jersey metro area, working closely with the MLS task force, as well as USL and local authorities.

The club, along with the MLS task force, maintains up-to-date plans and protocols consistent with recommendations from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our fans, players, and staff. We will continue to take precautions for the well-being of players and staff during the league suspension and urge all of our supporters and the general public to do the same. For further information we recommend visiting the CDC website.

 Public Health Recommendations to Slow the Spread of Covid-19

• Stay home when you are sick. Do not go out in public when you are sick.

• Avoid medical settings in general unless necessary. Healthcare facilities are at capacity. If you are ill in any way call your doctor’s office first before going in.

• Even if you are not ill, avoid visiting hospitals, long term care facilities or nursing homes to the extent possible. If you do need to visit one of these facilities limit your time there and keep six feet away from patients.

• Do not go to the emergency room unless essential. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular doctor first.

• Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including washing your hands with soap and water frequently, coughing into a tissue or your elbow, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

• Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are at higher risk for coronavirus.

• Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (like doorknobs and light switches). Regular household cleaners are effective.

• Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy foods, and manage your stress to keep your immunity strong
