New York, D.C. swap home dates for playoff tilt

Major League Soccer announced Wednesday that the first leg of the Eastern Conference playoff series between Red Bull New York and D.C. United will be played at RFK Stadium on Saturday, November 3 at 8:00 PM.

The first leg was originally scheduled to be held at Red Bull Arena, but the residual impact left by Hurricane Sandy has forced MLS to switch the location of Saturday's affair.

With United hosting the Red Bulls in the first leg, the return match will be played at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday, November 7 at 8:00 PM.
