2013 Red Bull v Houston Dynamo

2013.06.30 Red Bull Arena, Harrison, NJ

A sunday afternoon game saw the Red Bulls defeat the Dynamo 2-0 on goals from Fabian Espindola and Jonny Steele, to move into second place in the Eastern Conference. Red Bull's substitute Peguy Luyindula made some exciting plays in the second half...

The sold out game (attendance - 25,483) was broadcast on ESPN2. The Red Bulls gave away a red t-shirt "all in for red" before the game and kept announcing that fans should put on the shirt for the ESPN broadcast. Although not a great design, it is a cool experience to sit amongst everyone in red cheering for the home team. The "x" on the ticket was how the staff knew you were handed a t-shirt...

We could not find a game program, I guess they assume everyone attending has a smart phone and can look up the game information. Although my son did that, he said he preferred having game program to look at...

After the game promotional cards (4.5 x 6") with Thierry Henry announcing upcoming games were handed out. The back promotes a viewing party under the Brooklyn Bridge.
