The New York Red Bulls are the NYC area's first local entry in Major League Soccer—the top soccer league in the United States. Red Bull Arena, widely considered among the best soccer-specific stadiums in the nation, features stands with metal flooring that fans can stomp on, and the place gets loud for big games.

New York Red Bulls Home field: Red Bull Arena, Harrison, NJ (tickets) Who they are: One of the original MLS franchises—launched as the MetroStars—the Red Bulls were regular-season champs in 2015 and made a deep playoff run. Faces of the franchise: Ace goal scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips, steady midfielders Dax McCarty and Sasha Kljestan, dangerous winger Lloyd Sam—the list of skilled players is extensive.

Fan clubs: Empire Supporters Club, which you can find on gamedays in section 101; Viking Army, which commandeers section 102. Local supporters’ bar: There are plenty of NYC bars where you can join fans; one is Queens' Bar 43. Bradley Wright-Phillips. Random bit of trivia: Five former franchise coaches also led national teams to the World Cup: Carlos Quieroz (Portugal), Carlos Alberto Parreira (Brazil), Bora Milutinovic (Mexico, Costa Rica, United States, Nigeria, China), Bruce Arena (United States) and Bob Bradley (United States). Match-day practicalities: Take a PATH train to the Harrison stop from either the World Trade Center Transportation Hub or via Newark Penn Station (which you can get to from NYC’s Penn Station).
