The New York Red Bulls have signed highly advertised academy product Julian Hall, the club announced on Thursday.
Hall aged 15 years, becomes the second-youngest homegrown signing in RBNY history, inking a three-and-a-half-year deal through the 2026 season with the option for renewal in 2027. He is eligible for both the US and Poland national teams.
“We are very excited to add Julian to our roster for this season and also the long-term,” RBNY head of sport Jochen Schneider said in a release. “Julian has had a very good season, not just at the academy level, but the MLS NEXT Pro level as well and he has demonstrated that he has the qualities to succeed in our system.”
Hall has shown a knack for goalscoring, securing 28 goals in 39 academy appearances over the past three seasons. He is featured in seven matches for New York Red Bulls II in MLS Next Pro this season, becoming the youngest goal-scorer in club history (15 years, 73 days) after scoring against the New England Revolution II on June 4.
Julian Hall also emerged a top performer during this year’s U-15 MLS Nex Cup, gathering MVP honors after scoring five goals in the tournament, plus a game-tying goal that spearheaded his side’s MLS NEXT Cup title victory. He won the 2023 GA Cup Golden Boot too.
“We have seen very good things from Julian over the last calendar year,” RBNY head coach Troy Lesesne said. “Julian is a very promising young striker that has a lot of potential and we are excited to help him to continue to grow.”
