The Red Bulls have added a training stint in Sacramento to the club's preseason plans, the team announced Saturday.
They will travel to Sacramento to face Sacramento Republic FC (United Soccer League) on Feb. 10 before returning to Tucson, Arizona, to participate in the Desert Diamond Cup.
New York has also added a scrimmage against the University of Arizona Tuesday, Jan. 31. The team will feature split-squad matches that day, with a match against Real Salt Lake as well.
The Red Bulls will return to Tucson and begin the preseason tournament with a match against New York City FC Feb. 15.
The Major League Soccer side will play four games in the Desert Diamond Cup. They will meet Sporting Kansas City Feb. 18 at 5:30 p.m. ET and the Houston Dynamo Feb. 22 at 4 p.m., with their final match on Feb. 25 to be determined based upon their standing in after the results of the opening three games. Those games are scheduled for 3 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET.
The Red Bulls host the Vancouver Whitecaps in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals at Red Bull Arena Feb. 22, so the team competing in the Desert Diamond Cup that day will be a split-squad side. The second leg is set for Vancouver March 2.
