RED Academy partnered with Guelph United FC in 2022 to become an official affiliate for the 2022 season. The agreement fulfills a direct pathway to League1 opportunities for RED Academy players. As part of the agreement, RED players can be called up to GUFC U19 and L1 Reserve as apart of their supplemental roster.
In the 2022 season, six U17/U18 players were utilized by GUFC in the U19 division.
Prior to the affiliation, RED Academy graduated two players to Guelph United's League1 Championship team in 2021 and four players to the Reserve system.
