RSL became the 12th MLS franchise and began play on April 2, 2005 in a match against the New York Metrostars. Future coach Jason Kreis became the first player in RSL history, coming in a trade from the Dallas Burn, and also scored the club’s first goal. RSL’s first few years in MLS were marked by heavy losses and player turnover. Led by coach John Ellinger, the first season included a 10-match losing streak in route to a 5-22-5 inaugural season. RSL added veterans Clint Mathis, Eddie Pope, and Jeff Cunningham to these early teams. In 2007, RSL Jason Kreis was hired as the new manager midseason and retired as an active player.
