The New York Red Bulls will face Pumas UNAM in a friendly match on Thursday, February 23 in a game called Red Bull Reto del Sol, or “Challenge of the Sun.” This will be a follow up to last year’s Red Bull Reto del Sol match, which pitted the Red Bulls vs. Club Atlas de Guadalajara.
The 2012 game will be played at Chase Field, in downtown Phoenix, with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. local time and kick-off slated for 8:00 p.m.
In 2011, Red Bull Reto del Sol took place in Glendale, AZ, pitting the Red Bulls vs. Atlas, and drew more than 23,000 spectators. After a scoreless first half, the Red Bulls went down 0-1 when Atlas player Edgar Pacheco put up a ball that was inadvertently deflected into the net by New York defender Tim Ream. However, former Atlas star and Red Bulls Márquez converted a penalty kick in the 89th minute, earning New York a 1-1 draw.
