Viewing Party at the Football Factory Soccer Bar at Legends by Robert Kennerney

by Robert Kennerney for World Football Commentaries



On Saturday, September 17, during the New York Red Bulls vs. FC Dallas game at 8:30 p.m., the Football Factory Soccer Bar at Legends in NYC will attempt to set a record for the largest viewing party in MLS history. Throughout the season, Red Bulls fans have been showing up in numbers for every away game in the bar that resides beneath the Empire State Building, but this Saturday they will look to take it a step further and assemble a record number of fans.
For the past few months, the Football Factory has been representing the voice of the American, European and general soccer fan alike. Much of the work is evident on their Facebook page http://facebook.com/FootballFactoryNY where many jerseys and nationalities are represented.

Attempt to Break a Record

Although this event is an attempt to break an MLS record, another purpose for the night is to throw the gauntlet down to the other well-represented sports in New York City. We would like to show them that on a weekend when the Jets, Giants, Yankees and Mets will play, the largest group of people cheering on a New York team in one place will be for soccer.
MSG and MLS will be present on the night, along with New York Red Bull's staff, with many giveaways and incentives. It is believed that a minimum of 250 people will need to attend in order to set the record which will be confirmed later this week. More information can be found at the Football Factory website: http://FootballFactoryNY.com. Whether you can make it to the party on Saturday, or be inspired to make a stand and support your city's MLS team, we hope this is a step in the right direction for the national league of soccer in the United States.
