It’s always weird when we play an opponent twice in quick succession (see: July 2021 — yuck), but here we are playing Minnesota United once again. To help us prepare for this illustrious battle, let’s take a peek inside the famed RSL Soapbox Mailbag, which is really just Twitter. This...

Before Jan. 11, Real Salt Lake had made just one move in the offseason in acquiring striker Rubio Rubin. But then LAFC came calling about one RSL’s homegrown players, Corey Baird, and offered a deal the club couldn’t refuse. RSL gave up forward Corey Baird in exchange for $500,000 in...
Match one of the 2021 Real Salt Lake season is officially over and it’s safe to say the newest additions to the starting 11, Anderson Julio and Rubio Rubin, have made their presence felt. Technically, there’s only supposed to be one player of the game which indisputably has to be...
Real Salt Lake earned all three points on the road in their season opener, logging their second-ever win over Minnesota United thanks to a brace from Anderson Julio. David Ochoa got the start over both Andrew Putna and Zac MacMath, while both Anderson Julio and Rubio Rubin made their official debuts in the starting lineup for the visitors too.
HERRIMAN, UTAH (Friday, March 12, 2021) – Real Salt Lake has signed winger Anderson Julio on loan from San Luis in Mexico’s Liga MX for the 2021 season. The 24-year-old comes to RSL after scoring 27 goals with 26 assists in 134 career matches across all competitions with LDU Quito in his native Ecuador. Julio has joined the team for training and will join the roster pending receipt of his ITC and visa.
Last week we dropped the news that Anderson Julio, whom RSL was interested in 2 years ago; may once again be on the radar. Today it was confirmed. “We are thrilled to add a player of Anderson’s ability and quality to our roster,” RSL General Manager Elliot Fall said. “He’s a player that we’ve been watching for several years now and tried to acquire before he went to Mexico. The opportunity arose again to bring him in and we jumped at it. We are looking forward to what he brings to the group and what he’ll contribute to a successful 2021 campaign.”
While this is still a really early stage rumor it is still a rumor none the less. Futbolecuador.com has recently tweeted that Anderson Julio of Liga MX’s San Luis is being pursued by Real Salt Lake. This rumor is worth paying attention to solely for the fact that two years ago the player and club were rumored to be in discussions, with Julio ultimately signing with San Luis.
