Circle these dates, New York City FC and Red Bulls fans.
It’s another year for the Hudson River Derby.
For the fourth consecutive year the two foes will tangle three times during the Major League Soccer regular season, as the schedule for all 23 teams were released Thursday afternoon.
The rivalry kicks off at Red Bull Arena May 5 (ESPN).
It is followed by a July 8 encounter at Yankee Stadium (FS1).
And it concludes at the stadium in the Bronx with an Aug. 22 confrontation (FS1).
Last year City captured the derby for the very first time, going 2-0-1 during the regular season against its New Jersey foes. The Red Bulls did register a win in the Lamar Hunt/U.S. Open Cup.
