Red Bull Arena is a soccer-specific stadium in Harrison, New Jersey that is home to the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.[7] Featuring a partial transparent roof, it is located on the waterfront in the Riverbend District of Harrison[8] across the Passaic River from Newark and approximately 7 miles (12 km) west of lower Manhattan. With a seating capacity of 25,000,[9] it is the fourth-largest soccer-specific stadium in Major League Soccer.[citation needed]

Initial planning[edit]

The original plan, announced on July 1, 2004, was to move the MetroStars (as the New York Red Bulls were known at the time) from their home at Giants Stadium by the beginning of the 2006 season.[10] Negotiations between MLS and the state of New Jersey dragged on until an agreement was announced on August 5, 2005, for the MetroStars to build and complete construction of a new dedicated soccer facility for the 2007 season. Concerns about environmental clean-up at the selected site forced another delay.[11] Additionally, though the groundbreaking took place September 19, 2006 and construction was set for November 2007, that was delayed by one month when Red Bull GmbH bought out the MetroStars club from Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), changing the club's name in the process.[12][13] After projections of opening during the 2008, and then the 2009 season, on January 23, 2009, it was announced that the arena opening would be delayed until 2010.[14]

According to Erik Stover, Red Bulls managing director at the time, Harrison Redevelopment Agency chairman Peter B. Higgins was "quite simply the reason that the New York Red Bulls have a new home in Harrison. His vision and leadership guided us through numerous difficulties." [15] The late Mr. Higgins' contribution is memorialized by the street naming as Pete Higgins Boulevard at the main gates along the west side of the stadium.[16]

Red Bull buyout and new design[edit]

In addition to purchasing the team, Red Bull bought out AEG's $100 million share of the stadium, an after-effect of lasting disagreements between the two corporations regarding their plans for the facility. Their differences prompted a significant delay in the early stages of the stadium's construction. After the naming rights of the soccer team were acquired, leading to the name Red Bull Park, Red Bull instituted a number of changes to the stadium's original design, which sparked tension between the Austrian-based energy drink company and AEG. Red Bull opted out of AEG's plan to construct a stage in the stadium for performances, one that would have increased profit margins for the group.[17][18]

The updated design was completed by Rossetti architects from Detroit and was built by New Jersey-based Hunter Roberts Construction Group, LLC. The stadium's unique roofing system was engineered, fabricated, and installed by the projects specialty roofing contractor Birdair of Amherst, New York, a suburb of Buffalo.[19]

A tension-fabric curved exterior shell wraps around the entire two-tiered stadium, creating a distinguishing feature of Red Bull Arena. The roof extends 120 feet (37 m) from the last row of seats to just past the field's touchlines with 60 feet (18 m) of the roof being translucent to allow for natural light and is the largest roof canopy of all Major League Soccer stadiums covering all 25,000 seats. The low and enclosed roof design is well regarded for holding and amplifying sound extremely well, compared to other stadiums throughout the league.

The seats of Red Bull Arena are of the tip-up variety (without arm rests) similar to those of European soccer stadiums with the first row of seating approximately 21 feet (6.4 m) from the touchlines. Included in the 25,000 seats are 30 luxury suites and 1,000 premium seats.[20] The Red Bull logo is patterned in the seats directly opposite the team dugouts and entryway from where the players enter the field. Sections 133, 101 & 102 collectively make up the 1,500 seat home supporters section known as the "South Ward".[21] Among the blue seats of the South Ward is the "Red Seat" located at Section 101, Row 11, Seat 20. The Red Seat signifies the Red Bulls first goal scored at Red Bull Arena by Joel Lindpere; Section 101 represents the Arena's first game, Row 11 marks the minute of the game in which the goal was scored and Seat 20 remembers the goal scorer, No. 20 Joel Lindpere. Following the passing of Empire Supporters Club member Mike Vallo, the Red Seat's No. 20 was replaced by the initials "MV" to honor the fallen supporter who called Section 101 home.[22]

The lower bowl of the stadium is constructed of concrete, while the upper bowl is constructed of galvanized-metal. The Red Bulls intentionally chose galvanized-metal for the upper bowl so fans could create more noise by stamping their feet. In addition, the main concourse is elevated 26-feet high, eliminating a majority of field-level entryways giving Red Bull Arena's seating bowl a very compact, intimate feel.[23][24] On the North side of the main concourse are 13 "Red Beams"; each one memorializing a special moment in the club's history.[25]

The final overall design is on par with those of soccer stadiums around the world.[26][27] In addition, the Red Bulls seem to have been design inspired by the Hypo-Arena in Klagenfurt, Austria as both stadiums are similar in appearance.[28]

Construction[edit]

Red Bull Arena under construction in Harrison, New Jersey on March 10, 2009.

Construction commenced on Red Bull Park on January 3, 2008, on the site of a former Remco factory service building, including the first of 3,000 timber piles driven into the ground to support the new stadium. On January 11, 2008, Erik Stover was announced as the new general manager of Red Bull Arena during construction and then on after. He has served as GM of Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego since 2005.[29] On February 20, 2008, a CAN$28–$30 million contract was announced with Structal-Heavy Steel Construction to assist in the fabrication and construction of steel components. Fabrication began offsite in the second quarter of 2008, and erection in Fall, 2008.[30] Total project size is estimated at 9,000 tons of structural steel.[31]

The first steel girder was put in place on August 19, 2008.[32] The arena was reported by the New York Times to be 55% complete on March 27, 2009.[27] The last major beam for the roof was topped out on April 14, 2009.[33] Enclosure panels started going up on May 7, 2009.[34] The first section of the Red Bull Arena roof was completed in August 2009.[35] The underground drainage and turf-heating system installation began on August 18, 2009.[36]

Red Bull Arena internal view

Tax controversy[edit]

In 2010, the Red Bulls refused to pay a $1.4 million property tax levy to the town of Harrison, claiming that the stadium was exempt from paying taxes.[37] The team also refused to pay a $1.3 million for 2011. While the team did eventually pay the back taxes, it subsequently filed a lawsuit to have the payments reimbursed by the town, claiming the stadium was exempt from local taxes.[38]

On June 30, 2012, the Tax Court of New Jersey ruled that Harrison did have the right to tax both Red Bull Arena and the land underneath it and denied the team's claim for reimbursement.[39][40] This decision was upheld by an appellate court in May 2014.[41] The Red Bulls appealed to the state Supreme Court, who in October 2014 agreed to hear the case.[42] The Supreme Court referred the parties to mediation.

A settlement was proposed in which the Hudson County Improvement Authority would take over ownership of the land and stadium and enter into a lease agreement with the team, using the lease payments to give Harrison an annual PILOT (Payment In Lieu of Taxes) tied to the Consumer Price Index.[43] The settlement was approved by the Harrison Town Council and mayor on March 16, 2016.[44]

On July 14, 2016, the Red Bulls and town agreed to a revised settlement, in which the stadium and land will be turned over to the Hudson County Improvement Authority. The Red Bulls will pay an annual rental of $1.3 million, escalated annually based on the Consumer Price Index, of which $1.115 million will go to the town of Harrison. The lease agreement will be in place through 2038, with team options through 2058. At the end of the lease term, ownership of the stadium will revert to the town. This agreement must be finalized by the end of 2016.[45]

Events[edit]

Soccer[edit]

A soft opening of the stadium, a match between the Red Bulls Under-18 Academy team and the United States U-17 men's national soccer team scheduled for March 13, 2010, was postponed due to heavy rain and high wind.[46] The facility instead opened on March 20, 2010 as the Red Bulls played a friendly match against Brazilian club Santos FC winning before a sold-out crowd 3–1.[7][47]
