Admiring Red Bull Arena

Our first MLS venture went very well last Saturday Night, except for a 1-0 win by the visitors. Harrison, NJ was the site as we visited beautiful Red Bull Arena, set amongst a dumpy landscape full of warehouses, abandoned facilities and industrial workings. However, once you step inside this spectacular venue, it feels like your in a modern European facility. From the translucent roof, to the terrific sightlines and excellent design, I loved this stadium. Other positives include a great range of food offerings that have a Newark-Harrison flair. Outside of the facility, food trucks provide great meals for cheap too. The atmosphere was great, though not as boisterous as some in the league (Seattle, Portland, Toronto) we still had a descent crowd and most fans there were rather passionate. The supporters in the South Ward continuously cheered, chanted, danced and sang. Overall, a great night and stadium visit, though too bad Thierry Henry and Co. came out and laid an egg (with the exception of Tim Ream). All of the details on this stadium are in the review: #104 Red Bull Arena
