MORRISTOWN, N.J. (Jan. 21, 2015) – As previously announced, Sky Blue FC will look to extend its franchise record five-match winning streak when it travels to defending National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Champions FC Kansas City to start the regular season in Week 1, and that date has now been confirmed to be Sunday, April 12th. Kickoff for the match is 4:00 p.m. EST, with the game being hosted at Sporting Park in Kansas City.
The New Jersey side will then make its home debut at Yurcak Field the following weekend on Saturday, April 18th, hosting the Houston Dash.
Sky Blue FC will be playing its sixth professional season this year at Yurcak Field, which is located on the campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. The team will play a 20-match split of 10 home and away games in 2015, with the NWSL taking a brief two-week break during the group stages of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
The 2015 regular season will conclude in the middle of September and be followed by the league playoffs, which kicks off with two semifinal matches on the weekend of September 12-13th. The 2015 NWSL Championship Game will then be played on the weekend of September 26-27th to avoid potential FIFA dates.
2015 Sky Blue FC season tickets are available now, with packages starting as low as $120. Make sure you catch all of the world class NWSL action this season at Yurcak Field by calling 888-SBFC-TIX (888-723-2849) or placing an order online.
