Concacaf announces dates, times for series against Atletico Pantoja
HARRISON, N.J. (December 19, 2018) – The New York Red Bulls will head to the Dominican Republic to open the season against Club Atletico Pantoja on Wednesday, February 20, Concacaf announced today. The Red Bulls – Pantoja Round of 16 series in the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League will return to Red Bull Arena for Leg 2 on Wednesday, February 27.
Both matches will kick off at 8 p.m. ET. Tickets for the match at Red Bull Arena will go on-sale in January. Specific ticketing details will be announced at that time.
New York returns to the SCCL for the third-consecutive season after reaching the tournament’s semifinals in 2018. The Red Bulls defeated CD Olimpia (Honduras) and Club Tijuana (Mexico) before falling to eventual champions Chivas Guadalajara (Mexico). The Red Bulls reached the quarterfinals in 2017, falling to fellow MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
Overall, the Red Bulls have qualified for the Champions League six times and own a 6-4-8 record. Bradley Wright-Phillips led the Red Bulls with three goals in six matches during last year’s SCCL campaign.

The 2019 edition of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League will be the second to feature the recently developed, action-packed knockout style competition.
