History[edit]

The Rhode Island Reds Football Club was founded in 2012 and began play that same year in the Northeast Division of the National Premier Soccer League, the fourth tier of the American soccer pyramid and roughly equal to the USL Premier Development League. Based in Providence, Rhode Island and playing home games out of Cranston Stadium in neighboring Cranston, Rhode Island, the club took its name from the state bird, the Rhode Island Red.

The Reds had a relatively successful first season, finishing fourth in their division but missing the playoffs.[1]

In 2014 the RI Reds Fc will field a women's team in the WPSL for the first time.
