The USL has unveiled the New York Red Bull II schedule with a few very glaring stories coming from the announcement – starting with their home venue.

New York Red Bull II has not listed a home venue for the season. The team has two games scheduled at Red Bull Arena: first against Pittsburgh on May 28th and the second on August 28th against Cincinnati. Last season, NYRB II was supposed to play a majority of their season at Columbia University but negotiations between the two broke down leading to the games being played at Red Bull Arena.

The team will start their campaign on Sunday March 27th against Toronto FC II. Unlike last year, the league has kept schedule far more balanced with only two back to back road trips all season long. Last year, the team had long stretches away from home, with the longest being six straight away games.
