New York Red Bulls clinch MLS Supporters’ Shield with Decision Day win

The 2015 MLS Regular Season ended in style last night as Decision Day kept fans engaged throughout the evening, with the New York Red Bulls going on to win the Supporters’ Shield.

It sees the Red Bulls claim the Shield for the second time in their history with the previous win coming just two years ago in the 2013 season.

They needed a win to seal the Shield, with FC Dallas locked on the same number of points heading into the final game of the regular season, but with inferior goal difference. New York’s 2-1 win in Chicago sealed it as Dallas won 2-1 against San Jose.

Jesse Marsch has done a fine job with his players this term and New York set a franchise record as they recorded their 18th win of the year – the most they’ve ever managed.

They enter the MLS Cup Playoffs as the top seed in MLS and will find out who they face in Sunday’s Eastern Conference semifinal on Thursday night.

The No. 1 seed also means the Red Bulls will enjoy home advantage through the playoffs as a first MLS Cup looks to be a real possibility.
