Reigning USL champion New York Red Bull II unveiled preseason plans ahead of the start of 2017 regular season on March 25. All four games will be played at the Red Bull training facility in Hanover, N.J., against a mix of USL, college and lower-division teams.

Two USL teams are the Harrisburg City Islanders and Bethlehem Steel. Red Bull II has had success against both clubs in their first two seasons and look to cultivate those rivalries. The team will also play St. John’s University .

One of the more interesting preseason matchups will be RBII’s first game against Motown Celtics. The Garden State Soccer League team was started play in 2012.

All games will be closed to the media and there are no plans to show the games on YouTube.

New York Red Bull II Preseason Schedule:

Today, Motown Celtics
