Based in Harrison, New Jersey, the New York Red Bulls compete in the MLS. Placed in the Eastern Conference, the team is one of the original ten clubs in the MLS. Founded in 1996, when the MLS was born, the team has gone under a variety of name changes. Originally known as the New York/New Jersey MetroStars, they changed their name in 1998 to the MetroStars. They kept that name until the 2006 season, when they were bought by Red Bull GmbH. That is where they got their current name of the New York Red Bulls. They share the New York name with another MLS franchise, the New York City FC.
In 2013, the team became the last original MLS team to win a significant trophy. They won the Supporters’ Shield that year. Before that, there best finish was when they reached the MLS Cup final in 2008. In the US Open Cup, the team made it to three different semifinals as the MetroStars. First in 1997, then in 1998 and lastly in 2000. In 2003, they reached their first final in the US Open Cup, in which they lost to the Chicago Fire with a score of 1-0. Another big accomplishment was in 2000, when Clint Mathis of the MetroStars set an MLS record when he scored five goals in one match versus the Dallas Burn.
New York Red Bulls 2014 Season Preview
The New York Red Bulls have a couple of new acquisitions this year, those being: Bobby Convey, Armando and Richard Eckersley. The biggest thing to watch for this season will be Thierry Henry’s future with the Red Bulls. It’s his final year of his contract and the four-year team captain helped them grab their first major trophy in 2013. Another player to watch this season is Lloyd Sam. He has struggled to lock down a starting spot at his natural right midfield position last season. His absence in the opening three matches of 2013—especially after two impressive performances in 2012—was as enigmatic as it was frustrating. He will now be a key part of the team and will be very important to their success, if they have any.
