HARRISON, N.J. – The Red Bulls’ home regular-season finale match against Atlanta United FC on Nov. 3 has been moved back to MSG Networks from FS1 due to a potential conflict with Game 7 of the World Series between the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros.
Kickoff will remain at 7:30 p.m. ET. Both teams are fighting to solidify a position in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
The Red Bulls and Atlanta currently stand at 43 and 46 points, respectively, with Atlanta in sixth and New York in eighth. In the revamped MLS Cup Playoff format, the fourth-place team will host a home playoff match in the single-elimination bracket. Atlanta is just one point and New York four points back of fourth place.
New York is 6-1-2 in its last nine matches and have allowed four goals during the stretch. The Red Bulls are looking to secure a 12th consecutive postseason appearance. Their 11 straight playoff appearance streak is the longest streak of any New York metro area sports team, and is the second longest active streak in Major League Soccer.
