The Metrostars have made the playoffs in 1996, 1998, 2000, and 2001, advancing to the semifinals in 2000.
On the downside, in 1999 the team had the worst ever season in the league's short history, with a 7-25 record, scoring a mere 32 goals while giving up 64 tallies.
Perhaps most notably, German star Lothar Matthaus came to the Metrostars in 2000, raising the profile of the team and of MLS, in general.
