Earlier this weekend, the New York Red Bulls announced on Twitter that Ugandan footballer Steven Sserwadda had signed with the club from Red Bulls II.
- New York Red Bulls announced on Twitter on Saturday that Ugandan player Steven Sserwadda had signed a contract with the team.
- In the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations, Sserwadda appeared in all six matches for Uganda, scoring two goals in the group stage, which helped them make the final.
- He made his debut in a friendly against Tajikistan on 25 March 2022, winning 1–1 (5–4) in a penalty shootout.
As a Red Bulls II player, Sserwadda made his debut on October 15, 2021, while playing against the Tampa Bay Rowdies in a 1-1 draw.
This article will give you some background information on Sserwadda. Read on for more details.
Among his accomplishments is his first goal for a professional club, and his time with the New York Red Bulls.
Steven Sserwadda is an advanced midfielder and striker
The Red Bulls II soccer team has struggled mightily this season, conceding the most goals in the USL. That is why the Red Bulls have signed a few players on short-term loans, including Steven Sserwadda.
These players will now start training with the first-team, which could lead to more goals in the near future. Sserwadda could be one of three Baby Bulls to make their MLS debuts this season.
Sserwadda, 19, is a versatile midfielder who can play on either wing or in the centre. His creativity, daring and aggression are the hallmarks of an offensive midfielder.
“What we’ve seen from Steven over the last couple months has been very exciting,” said head coach Gerhard Struber.
“He fits into our style of play, and we have seen that in his appearances over the last month and believe that he can succeed at the MLS level.”
He was spotted by the Red Bulls during the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations, where he led the Uganda Hippos to a second-place finish and was a nuisance for the opposition.
He is a Ugandan international
The 19-year-old midfielder has signed a contract with the New York Red Bulls, his second club in the last two seasons. He spent last season with the club’s youth team, earning a total of 14 appearances.
His first-team debut came in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal win over New York City FC. He later made his MLS debut on July 30 against Atlanta United FC.
Sserwadda was born in Kampala, Uganda on August 28, 2002. He has played for the New York Red Bulls II side, and has also represented the national team of Uganda.
He rose through the youth ranks with his hometown club, and made his first senior national team appearance last summer against Tajikistan.
He is a dynamic midfielder, and he has already scored two goals in five appearances for the Ugandan national team.
He is signed on a contract with the New York Red Bulls
The New York Red Bulls have announced that forward Steven Sserwadda is now officially a member of the team.
This move is a significant one for the club, as it marks the beginning of a transition year.
Sserwadda is a relative unknown, but has exponential growth potential. Like Liefering and Salzburg, New York hopes to emulate their success by developing players who were previously considered a long shot by soccer’s top clubs.
The New York Red Bulls are thrilled to sign Sserwadda, a talented midfielder from Uganda.
The 19-year-old joined the senior side of New York Red Bulls II in 2021, and he’s already had a productive season for the club’s youth team.
He’s also played in a handful of short-term loan stints with the senior team.

On 25 March 2022, he debuted with the Uganda national team in a friendly 1–1 (5–4) penalty shootout win over Tajikistan.
