Red Bulls are 'evaluating options'

[MLS PLAYOFFS: New York-D.C. United] Red Bull Arena was spared during Hurricane Sandy’s devastating tour through New Jersey, but the New York Red Bulls' home and the surrounding area in Harrison, N.J., was hit by a power outage, putting in doubt Saturday's first leg of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against D.C. United.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Red Bulls issued the following statement:

“Our staff was continually assessing Red Bull Arena overnight and this morning and found only minor, non-structural damage to the facility. In addition, the pitch was fully covered and did not experience flooding. We want to thank our stadium operations and security staff for their tremendous job in preparing for Hurricane Sandy. Our club is currently in communication with local officials, authorities and Major League Soccer and evaluating our options for Saturday’s playoff game against D.C. United. We hope to provide further information soon.”

Harrison was considered an excellent site for the Red Bulls' stadium, in part because of access to public access, notably the PATH trains that come from New York, but New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Tuesday they'd be out of commission for 7-10 days.
