USL_Schedule_1_26

HARRISON, N.J. (January 26, 2016) – The New York Red Bulls II and United Soccer League announced the 2016 USL schedule on Tuesday. Red Bulls II will open the 2016 season on Sunday, March 27 at home against Toronto FC II. Time of kickoff is yet to be determined.


In 2015, Red Bulls II completed in its inaugural USL season. The team was compiled of Red Bulls academy players, USL players, draft picks and other MLS loaned players. Led by head coach John Wolyniec, NYRB II finished in fourth place with a 12-10-6 record.


The club was the fourth-highest scoring team in the league and qualified for a spot in the USL Playoffs. Red Bulls II won its first playoff game in an overtime win against Pittsburgh Riverhounds in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, before falling to the eventual USL champions, the Rochester Rhinos, in the Semifinals.


By the end of the inaugural season, a total of 13 players who played in at least one USL match, played for the First Team during the MLS regular season. The 13 players totaled seven goals and three assists in MLS, and all three assists were game-winners.


Red Bulls II will play 30 games in 2016, including 15 home matches at a venue to be determined. All matches will be streamed via YouTube and featured on NewYorkRedBulls.com.
