The New York Red Bulls were not always known as such, the team was 1st established in 1995 as New York/New Jersey MetroStars. From 2005 – 2009 they simply became known as the MetroStars. In 2009 the team was bought by Austrian drinks supplier Red Bull GmbH, and so the New York Red Bulls were founded. Under new ownership the team and the New York Red Bulls football shirts were completely rebranded.

The front of the jersey features a prominent Red Bulls graphic as is depicted on the crest that is also embroidered on the left side of the chest.
The New York Red Bulls may have a new football shirt but their start to the 2014 MLS season has been somewhat disappointing. The MLS is split into 2 regional conferences the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. The team with the most points overall at the end of the season wins the Supporters Shield. At the end of the regular season is a 10 game play-off; the winner of these games wins the MLS Cup.
The New York Red Bulls football shirts appear in the Eastern Conference. The team may have been around longer than some of the other MLS teams but they cannot claim to be one of the most successful. They have never won an MLS Cup. Their 1st major success came last season, when they won their 1st Supporters Shield. The start of the 2014 season MLS has not been promising for a repeat performance.
MLS Troubles for New York Red Bulls
After 4 games the New York Red Bulls have not yet managed to secure a win. There 1st game was one to forget, a trip to the Vancouver Whitecaps resulted in a 4-1 loss. Such a big 1st game defeat is never ideal for any football team, particularly one that is defending the Supporters Shield. The team would have been hoping for an immediate improvement on this 1st match result.
The first outing of the New York Red Bulls home shirt 2013 – 2014, at the Red Bull Arena was against Colorado. The end of last season saw the Red Bulls undefeated for 2 months. There was little sign of that outstanding team in their 1-1 home draw against Colorado. 1-1 has been the result of their last 3 games, away at Chicago and at home against Chivas USA.
Today’s match is another away game against Montreal Impact. The New York Red Bulls will be desperate to bag their first win of the new season. Sitting 8th in the table is uncomfortable for the Red Bulls however, tonight’s opponent is currently 9th and next weekend’s opponent DC United is 10th. If the New York Red Bulls can secure 3 points in these next 2 games it will be a massive boost for both team and fans.
The season is only just begun and with 30 games left to play the New York Red Bulls football shirts will have plenty more outings over the coming months. All is still to play for, however, if the team cannot post some winning results soon it will become increasingly difficult to fight back and defend their Supporters Shield. After 18 years of MLS, the team and fans alike will be hoping for stronger performances and a chance at their 1st MLS Cup.
