The New York Red Bulls are an American proficient soccer club based in Harrison, New Jersey. The Red Bulls compete as a part of the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer (MLS). The club was set up in October 1994 and started play within the league’s inaugural season in 1996 as the New York/New Jersey MetroStars. In 2006, the group was sold to Red Bull GmbH and re-branded as a portion of the company’s worldwide organization of football clubs, leading to the team’s current title.
The club’s unique title was Empire Soccer Club, which gave birth to the title of the team’s biggest supporters’ group, Empire Supporters Club. The team’s original proprietors were John Kluge and Stuart Subotnick. The title MetroStars was chosen in reference to Metromedia, the media company established by Kluge, after Nike’s original recommendation “MetroFlash” was rejected. The owners too considered but rejected buying the rights to the title “Cosmos”. Tab Ramos, the first player to sign with MLS, got to be the first MetroStars player and was before long joined by 1994 FIFA World Cup partner Tony Meola and A.C. Milan star midfielder Roberto Donadoni. 1990 World Cup player Peter Vermes was named the primary group captain, but it was the already obscure Venezuelan Giovanni Savarese who got to be the Metros’ first breakthrough star.
The team’s first coach was Eddie Firmani of New York Cosmos fame. In 1996, the MetroStars made news when they chosen players named Juninho and Túlio in the 1996 MLS Supplemental Draft. This report set off an instantly positive response which was rapidly smashed after the MetroStars uncovered that they had not actually drafted well-known Brazilian players Juninho Paulista and Túlio Costa, as individuals had assumed. The MetroStars postponed both draftees on March 25, 1996. Whereas the personality of “Juninho” was afterwards found, the genuine title and club history of “Tulio” remains unknown. This strange scene has entered MetroStars people legend.
The club was established in 1995 by John Werner Kluge and Stuart Subotnick, two directors for Metromedia, under the title MetroStars. The club was an establishing part of Major Alliance Soccer. In 2006 the club was sold to the Austrian company Ruddy Bull and renamed the New York Red Bulls.
