The New York Red Bulls II is the New York Red Bulls reserve team that plays in the United Soccer League, the third tier of the American soccer pyramid.


The New York Red Bulls II were founded on January 21, 2015, when the New York Red Bulls acquired the rights to start a USL club. Red Bulls II competes in the third tier of American soccer and serves as a reserve side for the first team as well as a developmental stage for young prospects and academy players. The club follows in the footsteps of many MLS clubs who created USL sides to help promote youth development throughout the nation. [2]

It was announced on March 2, 2015, that former Metrostars and Red Bulls player, John Wolyniec would be the club's new head coach. Wolyniec previously served as an assistant coach to the senior team and the academy. Former Red Bulls defender, Ibrahim Sekagya will also serve on his coaching staff. [3]

On March 19, 2015, the club announced the signing of their first ever player, and former academy standout, Tyler Adams.[4] Following their first signing, the club's first roster consisted of senior team players who were loaned down, draft picks, academy players and local trialists. [5] A week later, on March 28, the club played in their inaugural match, drawing 0-0 against the Rochester Rhinos. [6] Senior team loanee, Anatole Abang scored the club's first ever goal in a 4-1 victory against Toronto FC II, marking the first victory in club history. [7]

After spending the majority of the 2015 and 2016 season playing at Red Bull Arena, the club announced on May 10, 2016 that their new home field would be at Montclair State University's Pittser Soccer Complex starting in 2017. [8]
