HARRISON, NJ (Friday, April 25, 2024) – NJ/NY Gotham FC return to Red Bull Arena for the club’s second home game of the regular season to face Racing Louisville on Sunday, April 28 (5 p.m. ET;  NWSL+/MSG). 
Gotham FC fell 2-0 on the road against the Washington Spirit, and the club is looking to bounce back against Racing on Sunday. Gotham FC and Louisville faced off earlier this year in preseason during The Women’s Cup Colombia tournament, where the two clubs went toe-to-toe in a showdown for the final. After going down a goal in the first half, Gotham FC rebounded to win 3-1 off a brace from forward Esther and an own goal.
Racing Louisville is coming off its first win of the season. Louisville poured in five goals from four different players en route to a 5-1 win against the Utah Royals last week. Sunday will be the eighth meeting between Gotham FC and Louisville, with Racing holding the edge with a record of 2-1-5. 
Tickets are still available for Sunday’s match at Red Bull Arena between Gotham FC and Racing Louisville. For more information, visit
