Arrive Early to Avoid Traffic Heading Into Sunday's Sold-Out Match

Sunday’s sold-out match against DC United is sure to be an exciting one. But with a sold-out crowd also comes a few potential traffic concerns which, if handled properly, will not take away from your full match-day experience.

If you want to be on the safe side, and guarantee you won’t be sitting in traffic on your way into Red Bull Arena, allot a little extra time to your commute. Thankfully it’s a Sunday, so you won’t be dealing with any rush hour traffic. But if you’re an experienced driver on these highways than you would undoubtedly agree - New York and New Jersey roadways aren’t always clear sailing, no matter the hour or day. Give yourself an extra 30 to 60 minutes to ensure you will get to the game on time and avoid some of that traffic.

Gates will open at 5:30 PM, the usual 90 minutes before kick off. Fans can also hang out in the Interactive Zone to watch the Red Bulls Street Team in action, take a picture in front of the Match Day Magazine blue screen and Race the Red Bulls in the fully interactive soccer drill. The Coors Light Cold Zone will also be open for fans 21 and over.

We’ve rolled out all new parking and concessions at the start of the season, so if this is your first time visiting Red Bull Arena in 2012 then make sure you check out all of the new options available.  As always, use your best judgment when selecting a parking spot. If there is a sign that says you’ll get towed for parking in that section, odds are you’re going to get towed for parking in that section. Directions and parking options are available on our Transportation HUB.

We look forward to hearing all of you Sunday night as the Red Bulls aim to improve on their undefeated 4-0-2 home record.

Go Red Bulls!
