The D.C. versus New York is the longest standing rivalry in Major League Soccer. Since the inaugural MLS season, D.C United and the New York Red Bulls (formerly the New York/New Jersey Metrostars)have seen their share of dramatic clashes both in the regular season and playoffs. The name for the competition was not set until 2002 when both the trophy and rivalry was coined the Atlantic Cup.
