After a number of years without a team, "Central New Jersey" will be represented in USL League Two. Real Central New Jersey will begin its inaugural season in 2021 playing its home games at Mercer County Community College, a place that the Nor'easters called home temporarily during the 2003 season. "Real" joins a wave of new expansion teams in the Garden State. Along with 2021 expansion sides Morris County Elite, FC Motown, and New Jersey Copa FC, that brings the number of Garden State USL-2 clubs to seven (New York Red Bulls U-23s, Cedar Stars Rush). Only the state of Florida (8) has more USL-2 teams.
The Nor'easters will play another road game on Wednesday, May 19 at Lehigh Valley United before returning to Carey Stadium ("The Beach House") in Ocean City, N.J. for the team's home opener on Sunday, May 23 against West Chester United.
