This year, New York’s preseason will be as condensed as the MLS offseason itself.
Unlike past years, New York will keep it domestic – only traveling to Florida and Arizona. First stop? Bradenton from the 22nd to February 1st. Their first exhibition will be on the last day of the Bradenton camp against the Columbus Crew.
The Red Bulls will return home for 10 days prior to their travel to Arizona to take part in the annual Desert Cup tournament.
