The New York Red Bulls host D.C. United in the final Atlantic Cup match of the 2014 regular season and two players from each team will be sporting a limited edition cleat for the occasion. adidas has designed a unique colorway of the NitroCharge, Predator, adizero F50 and 11Pro cleats through the miadidas program for the match.
The Black-and-Red’s Perry Kitchen and Bill Hamid will wear the Predator and adiZero F50, respectively.
While the Red Bulls Dax McCarty will lace up the Predator and Jamison Olave will be the engine for his side in the NitroCharge.
The home side are the current holders of the Cup but D.C. United have won the first 2 meeting this season. And as much as the rivalry means to the fans of the club, the players are focused on booking a place in the MLS Playoffs.
D.C. United are currently on top of the Eastern Division and are close to being safely through to the playoffs. They are on the second match of a 3-game road trip and tied the Vancouver Whitecaps 0-0 last weekend.
The Red Bulls are sitting precariously outside the playoff picture in 6th place in the Eastern Division. They are 3 points behind the Columbus Crew and Philadelphia Union but have a game in hand so they control their own destiny to the playoffs. The side is confident having defeated Sporting Kansas City at Red Bull Arena last Saturday.
