Soccer In New Jersey and New York: The Strategic Battle Builds

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

In most cases around New York and New Jersey “the battle” for supremacy amongst pro sports rivals is often more fizzle than sizzle.

It is only in hockey, where the devils and Rangers have recently produced some memorable matchups where a “subway series” seems to pit two rivals at top time against each other. So early next spring we will have a new battle, this one on the soccer pitch; as the incumbent Red Bulls will meet expansion New York City Soccer Club for the first time. Could this be the rivalry that fuels some fire in and around Gotham?
