The quest for MLS Cup begins.
The New York Red Bulls will be looking for their first MLS Cup, and their first appearance in the championship game since the 2008 season, when the club lost 3-1 to the Columbus Crew.
Prior to the 2008 season, the club had never made it out of the first round of the playoffs. Since then, the only time the Red Bulls did not play in the second round of the postseason was in the 2010 season.
Since 2014, the Red Bulls have made it to the Conference Finals three times, in 2014, 2015 and 2018, the latter two being the same years they won the Supporters’ Shield.
