The Red Bulls will honor goalkeeper and captain Luis Robles prior to their home match against the Philadelphia Union at Red Bull Arena Saturday.
Robles’ Major League Soccer record of 183 consecutive, complete games will be recognized pregame with an on-field ceremony.
The Red Bulls will unveil permanent in-arena branding that honors Robles’ streak, which began in September 2012 and ran through the Red Bulls’ 2-1 win at the Colorado Rapids May 12.
The pre-game ceremony will take place during warm ups. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to join in the recognition, which will begin shortly after 6:30 p.m.
A special commemorative poster will be available upon exiting the match, with 183 posters autographed by Robles spread out amongst the gates.
Saturday will also be Military Appreciation Night. The first 15,000 fans that enter RBA will receive a free koozie.
