The New York Red Bulls have signed homegrown forward Roald Mitchell through the 2026 MLS season with options for 2027-28, the club announced Sunday.

Mitchell, 21, is coming off a standout three-year career at Wake Forest University. He tallied 19g/9a in 56 matches for the Demon Deacons, twice earning Second Team All-ACC recognition.

“We are happy to add Roald to our roster and to continue the history we have with our homegrowns,” head of sport Jochen Schneider said in a release. 

“Roald is a dynamic striker that has great abilities, and we are excited to see him continue to develop with us in the future.”

Before joining Wake Forest, Mitchell featured in the Red Bulls Academy from 2018-21. He’s also made 10 appearances for Red Bulls II, contributing 2g/1a. 

“I am very excited to sign a first-team contract with the New York Red Bulls,” said Mitchell, who has earned youth national team call-ups for both the United States and Trinidad and Tobago.

“This has been a dream of mine for a long time and I’m excited I can accomplish this goal. I’m looking forward to helping the team accomplish its goals and make the fans proud.”

Now led by head coach Sandro Schwarz, RBNY begin their 2024 regular season on Feb. 25 at Nashville SC (5 pm ET | MLS Season Pass).
