NEW YORK - Red Bull New York have issued a press release to assure fans that they will set a high priority on the meaningless International Champions Cup friendly against Chelsea.
"Red Bull New York is synonymous with taking our competitions seriously which is why we will prioritize the International Champions Cup game against Chelsea over other meaningless competitions. Granted we are playing the day before, but no game means more to us than our high profile game against the English champions. This ICC game is the way in which we prove our standing on the international football scene and as such we will give every measure to beating Chelsea."
While Red Bull New York play in the US Open Cup the day before their game against Chelsea, it appears that this game is an afterthought to the higher profile Chelsea game.
"We will have far more attention and fans in the stands for Chelsea than the US Open Cup game and we intend to make sure that we do not disappoint them. This ICC game will be a nationally televised event that will ultimately have a large financial gain for us. I mean, roughly 1,000 people actually care about beating Philadelphia anyway," said RBNY public relations director Dean Granziec.
