The New York Red Bulls are an American professional soccer team based in Harrison, New Jersey. The Red Bulls compete as a member of the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer. The club was established in October 1994 and began play in the league's inaugural season in 1996 as the New York/New Jersey MetroStars. In 2006 the team was sold to Red Bull GmbH and re-branded as part of the company's global network of football clubs, leading to the team's current name.
