New York Red Bulls win 2015 MLS Supporters' Shield

After a nip-and-tuck fight all season, the New York Red Bulls have claimed the 2015 MLS Supporters’ Shield for compiling the best record during the MLS regular season following their #DecisionDay victory on Sunday at Toyota Park against the Chicago Fire.

It’s the second time the Red Bulls have won the Shield in the past three seasons, including a stellar 2013 season that resulted in the first trophy in the club’s history (17-9-8, 59pts). They finished 2015 with an 18-10-6 record and 60 points.

The Red Bulls needed every bit of their strong finish to the season, having won four of their last five matches to edge FC Dallas. The Red Bulls now head into the Audi 2015 MLS Cup Playoffs with the No. 1 overall seed, giving them a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout, including hosting honors for the title game should they advance that far.
