  • Footing the Bill: Harrison and the Future of the Red Bulls
    F C is going to kill them says Martinez It s an especially tricky moment for the Red Bulls to be facing a new rival Though the team is coming off two successful seasons earning a Supporters Shield trophy for the league s best regular season record in 2013 and a trip to the conference finals last year it also just lost the longtime face of the franchise French goal scoring wizard Thierry Henry to retirement With NYC F C signing 2010 World Cup champion David Villa and former Chelsea midfield great Frank Lampard the weight of star power has decidedly shifted to the Bronx It doesn t help that the Red Bulls recently fired coach Mike Petke a former Red Bulls player and fan favorite and replaced him with former Montreal Impact coach Jesse Marsch The move prompted one fan group to raise a reported 5 500 for a billboard along I 280 protesting the change De Grandpre says he s not worried touting the superior game experience the Red Bulls can offer at a soccer only stadium Asked what his club plans to do to fight for soccer fans from New York about one third of Red Bulls season and group ticket holders and half of individual game ticket buyers are from the New York he says that the team s strategy is to celebrate our history Recommended Reading Court Street School Fortified Students for Anything The team s financial health is hard to determine Forbes estimates that the Red Bulls lost 6 3 million in 2013 as did about half the teams in the league but that was before MLS signed a new more lucrative TV deal At the team s final home game of 2014 a November 23 conference championship loss to New England Revolution Red Bulls supporters polled by this reporter insisted they would stick with their team but were unclear on what other fans might do If you re a Red Bulls fan you re going to stay said Manhattanite Dan Ramos If you re a fair weather fan you re going to go to Yankee Stadium And if you ve got kids your kids may determine it The outcome of Harrison s stadium gamble remains equally fuzzy In exchange for the town s 40 million investment the Red Bulls agreed to pay just 1 a year rent plus 125 000 in payments in lieu of property taxes or PILOTs The team received a full property tax exemption though this is currently tied up in legal issues The rest of the city s payback was to come out of PILOT payments from new hotels and apartments that would accompany the stadium Thanks in part to the economic downturn construction around the stadium started slow with dire effects on city revenue In 2011 Harrison s bond rating sunk as low as Detroit s In fact all of the new suburban soccer stadiums provided weak initial returns on taxpayer spending The Philadelphia Inquirer last year described
