In the season opener the New York Red Bulls hosted a watch party to their season ticket holders. As luck would have it I'm one of them. The game was an away game when the Red Bulls traveled down to Nashville to play the Nashville Soccer Club. While the game was a closely fought game, the atmospher at Red Bull Arena was lively.

One of the highlights was the access to the luxury boxes. The access was given to the Audi Club, the Provident Bank Suite among other luxury suites. Food was included to the fans who showed up. Moreover for fans that were over the age of 21 were given a voucher to redeem for a free alcoholic drink.

Another highlight was the interactions that Red Members had with two players. The players that were on site during this event. The two players on site that day were AJ Marcucci and Curtis Ofori. I was able to get two autographs one of them being on a fan scarf that was given away to the members and the other were a picture card of the player. On the cards that were autographed, it included the player's hometown as well as their social media handels for the fans to follow them. Moreover, they were posing with fans interacting with fans and made sure that they were happy at the end of the day regardless of the result of the game.

At halftime there was a raffle for the people who were there. One of the prizes was a away replica shirt, the other was a kit of the hiphop edition shirt, another is a duffel bag and the last one was a Stanley thermos with a NYRB logo on it. I however didn't win anything and was close when the prize was the hiphop edition kit with the jersey in it. On that raffle I was 40 numbers away from getting it.
