The Red Bull Arena is a football stadium in Harrison, New Jersey in the United States. It is the homeground of New York Red Bulls, a team playing in the MLS (Major League Soccer), the highest league in American soccer.

The construction started in 2006, but through differences of the clubowner and the state of New Jersey there was a delay. After the buying of the former Metro Stars by the Red Bull Company the stadium was opened on March 20th, 2010 with a friendly match of the NY Red Bulls versus FC Santos from Brazil. One week later the first leaguematch was held in the new stadium versus Chicago Fire. The stadium has 30 luxury suites and 1,000 premium seats. The design is customized to the design of the owner company, Red Bull.
