MLS Red Bulls Struggle To Crack N.Y. Media Landscape Before NYC FC's Arrival
Published March 6, 2014
GOING PRO: Red Bulls Sporting Dir Andy Roxburgh on Tuesday said that the club is "well on its way to fielding a second team" in the USL Pro league, but that it "likely will not happen until the beginning of next season." SOCCERBYIVES.net's Franco Panizo noted, "The Red Bulls had initially attempted to get a team off the ground for this season, but could not pull it off in time and are now confident of doing so" ahead of the '15 campaign. The Red Bulls as part of the move to add a USL Pro team "are currently in the process of renovating the brand new training facility that they opened last year." The club is "adding locker rooms and bleachers in preparation for the arrival of the third division side, which Roxburgh said will play its home games at the facility" (SOCCERBYIVES.net, 3/5).
