Professional soccer has arrived on the Montclair State University campus.
Tickets are now on sale for the New York Red Bulls II 2017 season, with 14 of the club’s 16 home games to be played at the newly refurbished MSU Soccer Park beginning with the home opener on April 1 against the Richmond Kickers.
Members of the Montclair State University community will have access to special discounts on both season packages and single-game tickets. Students, faculty, staff and alumni can purchase season ticket packages for just $84, while single-game tickets can be purchased for $7. Season plans for children 12 and under are just $42, while single-game tickets are $5. All children age 2 and under are admitted free to all Red Bulls II home games played at MSU Soccer Park.
“We are pleased to be able to offer these benefits to the Montclair State University community,” says Montclair State University Vice President for University Advancement Jack Shannon. “This partnership is one that will be mutually beneficial to Montclair State University, the New York Red Bulls II and the community at large in a variety of ways. We look forward to seeing the team play this season and having them become part of the fabric of this institution.”
"We are proud to call Montclair State University our new home," says New York Red Bulls II Director of Business Operations Jamie Ponce. "Our goal is to make our tickets affordable to the University community with the aim of New York Red Bulls II being the club students and faculty can all support for years to come.”
As part of a comprehensive agreement between the respective entities, the Red Bulls have completed the initial phase of upgrades to MSU Soccer Park in time for the 2017 season. The facility will be transformed by the organization into a 5,000-seat stadium over the course of the next five years with a range of new amenities added, including a press box, video camera platforms and a FanFest area.
In addition to being the home pitch for the Red Bulls II, MSU Soccer Park will remain the home of the University’s nationally ranked men’s and women’s soccer programs and will be available for the Red Bulls’ Premier Development League team and future Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup matches. Red Bulls Training Programs will also have the opportunity to host residential camps for youth soccer players at the University. The upgraded facility will also position the University as a possible host for some of college soccer’s biggest events, including the NCAA Division III men’s and women’s Final Fours.
