Only a handful of internationally charged exhibition matches are scheduled to take place stateside in 2014. One of the lucky few will feature the MLS' New York Red Bulls hosting Arsenal FC in a highly anticipated contest set for July 26 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. Making the match especially is the fact that it will be Arsenal's only appearance in the U.S. this year, and it will pit current Red Bull Thierry Henry against his former club.
Red Bull Arena Seating Information
All levels of seating will be available inside Red Bull Arena for the July 26 exhibition match. The 100 level is closest to the field, and is followed by the 200 level, though some Luxury Skybox seating also may be open and is located only on one side of the stadium. The Red Bulls' bench is usually positioned in front of Section 109, though this is subject to change for the contest against Arsenal.
Red Bull Arena General Information
All guests entering Red Bull Arena are subject to search. Bottles, coolers, containers, large bags, professional cameras, and outside alcohol may not be brought inside. Modest amounts of food and one plastic, factory-sealed bottle of water per guest is generally allowed. All children over the age of two must have their own ticket to be admitted. No re-entry is permitted.
Red Bull Arena Parking Information
A number of Harrison Public Parking Lots surrounding the Arena usually offer paid parking, though tailgating is typically prohibited. Accessible parking spots are available next to Arena Gate B and on Guyon Street. The New Jersey Transit has been known to offer a direct, complimentary shuttle service beginning two hours before each match and ending one hour after the event's conclusion.
Red Bull Arena Gate Times
Admission gates will likely open 90 minutes before the start of the July 26 match. This is subject to change though in the case of special events like Red Bulls vs Arsenal.
