Any PATH users and NY Red Bulls fans who would be more likely to attend games after the station gets fixed up? I've read and heard its a pain in the arse on game days (to the point that a lot of people go into Newark and walk across the bridge instead). Would that (coupled with the development of the surrounding area and continued winning seasons) help the Red Bulls actually sell out more of their games?

Why is that? Is it a scheduling issue (infrequent service)?

The New Station won't open till 2017...they shifted the platform a few hundred feet West to allow for the New Fare Gate building to start construction... I don't think the New Station will solve the overcrowding. You have to many people trying to use a service all at one time. The Ironbound section of Newark is where a lot of Red Bull attendees tailgate and party. As for selling out , I think if the team wasn't named after a Energy Drink and New York and named after Newark or New Jersey it would have done better from day one. The Soccer Community in the surrounding areas is huge , due a mix of South/Central Americans , Africans & Europeans. So naming the team after NY really hurt the team. They do have local Soccer games between towns and they can get very crowded at times.

From what I understand, overcrowding at the station. Station was not designed to handle 25,000 people trying to get home at the same time, so long lines, long waits, etc. As the reply mentioned, new station probably won't eliminate the problem, but may help a bit.

No, it doesn't work that way in sports. They aren't the "Landover Redksins" or the "New Jersey Giants" for a reason. If NYCFC already existed before the Metrostars came along, then I might listen to them being called a New Jersey team. But you don't make a name for yourself as a league without having a team representing the New York market. I don't disagree that not calling them "New Jersey" or "Newark" and being named after an energy drink wouldn't alienate a few fans on the New Jersey side of the river, but that's a fairly insignificant number of fans compared to trying to pretend a metropolis of 8 million people next door doesn't exist or the money that comes from being a walking advertisement.

I had heard of issues with getting home from the games (hence why I was asking about the upgrades to the station) and also just the general desolateness of the area surrounding the stadium. Looks like there's one pretty far along apartment project in the 6 blocks in front of the stadium and one starting on the block just south of that? Any retail associated with those projects? Perhaps a neighborhood bar that fans could go to before games?

Excited to see the upgrades come to fruition in Harrison.

But most of the fans are from New York.... Its taken as an Insult by the local communities...which are big Soccer fanatics.. At least name the team after New Jersey.... Those were the 2 common answers I received when I asked a few locals why they don't support the team. They don't feel the name represents the area. We have the Devils and a few AA Baseballs teams that name themselves after the City or County they reside in. The Energy drink was a stupid name....most teams are not named after corporate items... All the redevelopment is mixed use...

Red Bull is doing this in a bunch of countries (Germany, Austria, ...) and although the feedback is the same pretty much everywhere => Deep aversions going as far as hate(especially in Europe with its fanatic soccer fans ("Ultras")) they think they it's a necessity. In Germany they bought a small, 5th minor league suburb team, named it after the respective city, Leipzig, and started buying their way upwards.
I can understand the sentiments of the Newarkers (idk if that exists) quite well as you can once again see that RB mainly cares about profit and to a much lesser extent about the sports let alone the fans. Newark was a cheaper building site for the stadium, so they built it there, still calling themselves NYRB though because, 'Who cares about NJ'

Hoboken mayor slams Port Authority for upping PATH train wait times



Passengers wait for the PATH train at Hoboken Terminal on May 19, 2015. (Kathryn Brenzel | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)

HOBOKEN—Some passengers at Hoboken Terminal will have to wait a little longer to catch a PATH train to New York, and they can blame overcrowding in Jersey City for it, Port Authority officials told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday.

Port Authority won't say when PATH auto braking system will be operational


So-called positive train control technology that automatically applies the breaks when trains are travelling at excessive speeds will be implemented on the PATH system's Newark-WTC line by "the end of 2016," the Port Authority told NJ Advance Media. (Spencer Platt | Getty Images) (ges)

By Steve Strunsky | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on May 19, 2015 at 8:00 AM, updated May 19, 2015 at 6:10 PM

JERSEY CITY — The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says only that it "has made progress" over the past 15 months equipping PATH trains and track with the kind of automated breaking system that might have prevented the deadly Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia last week.

The Port Authority said the so-called positive train control technology is not operational on any part of the PATH system. But it would not say how much of the system had been installed so far, or whether the agency would meet a federally-mandated Dec. 31 deadline for the system to be in place and working.
