New York Red Bulls II return to MSU Soccer Park Saturday when they take on Charlotte Independence. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET. and can be seen live on ESPN+.
NYRB II, coming off their first loss at home of the season against FC Cincinnati at Red Bull Arena, looks to cristen their newly-renovated stadium, MSU Soccer Park, with a win.
Charlotte, sitting fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings, comes to MSU Soccer Park carrying a four-game winning streak, two of which are road victories. The Jacks most recently obtained an away, 1-0, victory at Ottawa Fury FC.
Saturday’s game at MSU Soccer Park, located on the campus of Montclair State University, will be NYRB II’s first game at Montclair since September 30, 2017. NYRB II played their first six home games of the season at Red Bull Arena due to upgrades being done to the facility. The upgrades include an increase in capacity (from 3,500 to 5,000) and a new playing surface.
Following Saturday’s match, NYRB II will hit the road to face the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on June 16. The match falls on the same day as the first team’s U.S. Open Cup match against the Philadelphia Union.
