Felipe Martins has been ever-present in the New York Red Bulls' lineup since he joined the club for the 2015 MLS season. He made 40 appearances in all competitions for RBNY in his first year with the team, and 39 in 2016: which gives him two entries in the club's all-time, all-competitions single-seasons appearances top 10. He's also twice in the club's all-time top 10 for single-season minutes played in all competitions. And he has played every minute of every competitive game RBNY has contested so far this season.
The stalwart midfielder has logged 91 career appearances for RBNY to date (89 starts), scored eight goals, chipped in 15 assists, and won the 2015 Supporters' Shield with the club.
