Red Bull Arena has yet to open, but the best soccer specific stadium in the nation has already begun adding major events.
The New York Red Bulls and the Big East Conference announced that Red Bull Arena will be the new home for the men's Big East Championships for the next three years (2010-2012). The 2010 Big East Tournament semifinals and championship match will be played at the Harrison, New Jersey facility from Nov. 12-14.
“The BIG EAST is thrilled to announce the partnership with Red Bull New York and their new world-class facility,” said Jim Siedliski, BIG EAST Associate Commissioner for Olympic Sports. “We feel Red Bull Arena is the ideal location to hold our men’s soccer championship, and will allow our student-athletes to play in a professional atmosphere and in a major metropolitan market that embraces the sport of soccer.”
