Austin, TX (July 2, 2020) The United Soccer League announced today the revised schedule for the 2020 USL Championship season. The league’s clubs are set to play 263 games over 13 weeks to decide which 16 teams will advance to the 2020 USL Championship Playoffs, which will open in the second weekend of October.
Last week, USL placed Austin Bold FC into regional Group D with OKC Energy FC, FC Tulsa, Rio Grande Valley FC Toros, and San Antonio FC. Coach Marcelo Serrano’s men will play each of those clubs at least three times. The remaining games will be against two clubs outside Group D, Colorado Springs Switchbacks and Sporking Kansas City II.
The Bold re-kickoffs the season at Bold Stadium on July 17 against OKC Energy FC in the first of seven matches in Austin, TX. The Bold Familia will get to know I-35 rivals San Antonio FC very well by the end of 2020. The two Texas sides face off four times in the condensed season (two home and two away) with the first match on August 1. Fellow Copa Tejas club Rio Grande Valley FC Toros visit Bold Stadium on August 8, before two away trips to Edinburg.
