2014 USL PRO schedule announced

 

We appreciate everyone´s patience and are happy to announce that USL PRO released its 2014 regular season format and schedule today, with each of its 14 clubs playing a 28-game regular season schedule opening on March 22 and concluding on September 7. As the league enters the second season of its groundbreaking partnership with MLS, every USL PRO squad will once again play a pair of regular season games vs MLS Reserve teams.

 

Three new teams have joined USL PRO in 2014: the LA Galaxy II, OKC Energy FC and Sacramento Republic FC. Antigua Barracuda FC and VSI Tampa Bay FC will not return in 2014.

 

Head coach Van Druenen’s reaction about the schedule, “Despite some physically and mentally demanding trips, which is a characteristic of this league,  I am happy with the 2014 schedule. It’s a lot more balanced than in previous years because of the extension of the season and I expect the competition level to be very high with the addition of 3 new strong franchises with one of them being a MLS organization.” 

 

The Dayton Dutch Lions FC will kick off the season in New York, at the Red Bull Arena, against the reserves of MLS team New York Red Bulls. Kick off time is set for 6:00pm.

 

“This is a fun trip to start with, playing against an MLS reserve team and in an MLS stadium is always extra motivating for the players.”  was head coach van Druenen’s reaction to the season opener.
