Upgrades to Provident Bank Suite Lounge at Red Bull Arena paying off early

Premium space upgrades (new carpeting, furniture and overall look) have led to increase in guests in 1st 5 games of season

There was a full renovation of all 27 indoor suites of the Provident Bank Suite Lounge — complete with new flooring, carpeting, furniture and the opportunity for personal branding.

There was a gut renovation of the Midfield Suite space — which created a panoramic view with a “wow” factor in a space large enough to form a “party suite” that can host as many as 54 people

There was the addition of a gaming lounge — which creating an opportunity for suite guests to play FIFA 22 on match days.

More than anything, the upgrades to the premium seating at Red Bull Arena in Harrison have brought what the New York Red Bulls want most: more fans.

So said Shaun Oliver, vice president of operations at Red Bull Arena.

“In our first five home matches of the 2022 season at Red Bull Arena, we have hosted more guests in the premium spaces than at any other similar span of time in the history of the venue,” he said.

The aim was easy to define, Oliver said.

“The creation of the Midfield Suite allows guests on the fourth and fifth levels of the Provident Bank Suite Lounge to have more direct connection to the action on the field,” he said. “When revisualizing the individual suites, we wanted to leave a canvas for our partners to have the opportunity to customize their branding and preferred environment.”

The Audi Club and the Bulls Corner also saw a full refresh, Oliver said.

The Audi Club got new flooring and furniture, creating more of a lounge-style experience, Oliver said. And Bulls Corner received a full renovation, transforming the previous pub style to more of a modern lounge.

The Red Bulls, who hosted the Portland Timbers last Saturday night, next play at home May 18 against the Chicago Fire.
