There will be a strong BIG EAST presence at the New York Red Bull's September 11th game against the Colorado Rapids (4:00 PM, Red Bull Arena, Harrison, N.J.). The Conference will officially kick off a two month push to promote the 2010 BIG EAST Men's Soccer Championship presented by Travelodge, which will be held at Red Bull Arena on November 12th and 14th.
 
A pre-game ceremony will take place with officials from the New York Red Bulls BIG EAST Conference, and Travelodge, as well as three of the league's head coaches: Dan Donigan of Rutgers, Manny Schellscheidt of Seton Hall and Dr. Dave Masur of St. John's.
 
There are currently three former BIG EAST players on the Rapids: Ian Joyce of Seton Hall, Omar Cummings of Cincinnati, and Anthony Wallace of USF. The Red Bulls, buoyed by the addition of French superstar Thierry Henry, sit in second place in Major League Soccer's Eastern Division.
