Add another international fixture to the docket in Harrison.

Red Bull Arena will play host to a friendly between Jamaica and Serbia on May 26th at 4 pm. This becomes the third international encounter announced at the Arena this year, following the U.S. Men’s National Team’s match against Turkey (June 1st) and the June 6th encounter between Greece and Bolivia.

Unlike the other two encounters, neither Serbia nor Jamaica are set to play in this year’s World Cup.

Jamaica has played at Red Bull Arena before, beating Honduras in the group stage of the 2011 Gold Cup. Moreover, they have several MLS players on their roster including the Whitecaps’ Darren Mattocks, the Union’s Andre Blake and Colorado’s Deshorn Brown, who played against the Red Bulls at the Arena this past weekend.

For Serbia, the encounter will be a bit more unknown. It is their first trip to Harrison and they have no MLS players to boast. What they do have is an impressive run of international play heading into the match, going 4-0-2 in friendlies and World Cup qualifiers.

Tickets for the match will go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 24 at 10:00 AM. Red Bulls Season Ticket Holders will have an exclusive pre-sale for the match starting Wednesday, March 19 at 10:00 AM.
