Montclair State has partnered with the New York Red Bulls II, the United Soccer League second team of Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls, and will be the new home for the club beginning in 2017.
As part of the formal partnership, the organization will help the University renovate Pittser Field, home of Red Hawks soccer, turning the facility into a 5,000-seat stadium over the next five years. When completed, Pittser will also serve as the home field for Red Bulls II and will feature a press box, video camera platforms and a FanFest area.
The upgrades will position Montclair State as a potential host location for some of college soccer’s biggest events, including the NCAA Division III men’s and women’s soccer Final Four tournaments.
“We are excited by this partnership and recognize that it will allow Montclair State students to develop an even closer connection to a sport they love,” says Montclair State Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Holly Gera.
