HARRISON, N.J. (December 2, 2021) - The New York Red Bulls have added to the club’s eMLS team by signing Cormac “Doolsta” Dooley, the club announced today.

Doolsta earned eMLS’s first treble in 2019, winning league series one, league series two and EMLS Cup. On his road to winning the first eMLS treble, he defeated Kid Memito (formerly of Houston now a Chicago Fire gamer), 4-3 in League Series One, then took down Thiago (Portland), 2-1 in League Series Two and followed up with a win over Guastella (LA Galaxy), 2-1, in the eMLS Cup Final. Doolsta followed up his league campaign by qualifying for the first eChampions League in Manchester, England.
”I’ve known Doolsta for nearly five years now and I’m super excited for him to be representing RBNY in eMLS,” said RBNY Content Creator Mike Labelle. “His energy and aggressive style of play aligns well with the clubs attitude and I’m excited to work him to achieve his goals this year.”
He completed his final FIFA 19 competition of the year by competing in Berlin at the PlayStation 4 Global Series Playoffs. Facing off against the top 64 players in the world, Doolsta fought until the end of the opening day but was unable to advance to the knockout stage taking only one victory against a difficult set of opponents.
“It is an absolute honor to join a club with such a big profile and to represent the New York Red Bulls’ eSports team for the upcoming season”, said Cormac “Doolsta” Dooley. “I'm very excited to begin competing and to work alongside Mike Labelle, who is a good friend of mine. My goal for this year is to represent the Red Bulls to the best of my ability, bringing as many eMLS titles as I can back to the Red Bulls organization and with the support I have behind the scenes at the club I'm very optimistic of doing that."
Currently enrolled at Cabrini University, Doolsta finished his sophomore season with the men’s soccer team. At midfield, he appeared in 16 games for the Cavaliers, recording one goal on two shots in 360 minutes played. He helped guide Cabrini to an Atlantic East Conference title and NCAA Division III tournament appearance.
