About The New York Red Bulls
The New York Red Bulls are an American soccer club that competes in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer (MLS). Based in Harrison, New Jersey, the club has played its home games at Red Bull Arena since 2010.
Red Bulls Background
The club was established in 1994 as the New York/New Jersey Metro Stars. In 2006, the team was sold to the Austrian energy drink company Red Bull GmbH and its name was changed from the Metro Stars to the Red Bulls. Originally, the club’s home field was Giant’s Stadium, but after the team’s sale to Red Bull, construction on a new facility (Red Bull Arena) began.
The team has been competitive since the time of its creation. The Red Bulls have won MLS Supporters’ Shield, an award that recognizes the team with the most regular season wins, three times including in 2018. The club has also reached the MLS cup once in 2008, and the US Open Cup finals twice in 2003 and 2017. In addition, the team has won the Eastern Conference championship six times, most recently being 2017. This success has led to a relatively large fan base for American soccer, including 11,000 season ticket holders.
Red Bulls Rivalries
The Red Bulls are probably best known for their rivalries with other MLS teams. The most notable is their fierce rivalry with D.C. United, with whom they compete for the Atlantic Cup. In addition, the Red Bulls are adversaries with the New England Revolution, Philadelphia Union, and New York City FC.
Red Bulls Players
The Red Bulls are not short on star power when it comes to their roster. Former players include some legendary American soccer players like Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, and Tim Howard. Currently, the team is led by their goalkeeper and captain, Luis Robles, who has the club record for most games played as a Red Bull. The most prolific scorer in team history, Bradley Wright-Phillips, is the leader of the offense. The team is managed by second year head coach Chris Armas, a veteran of the MLS and the U.S. Men’s National Team.
