ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The USL Championship announced the 2020 regular season schedule which will see Saint Louis FC play 34 games over the course of 33 weeks starting with the home opener against The Miami FC on March 7th.
Similar to the 2019 USL Championship season, Saint Louis FC will host six of the first nine games of the season at home with matches against expansion-side The Miami FC, Indy Eleven, Hartford Athletic, Charleston Battery, Tampa Bay Rowdies and Sporting Kansas City II. The next six home games are spread over the summer from May 16-September 5 with 11 games on the road during that stretch. The season will conclude with five of the last eight games at home, including the season finale against Philadelphia Union II on October 17th, as the club looks to secure their second playoff berth in franchise history. This season marks the first time that Saint Louis FC has hosted both the season opener and season finale in club history.
Due to an odd number of teams in the USL Championship Eastern Conference, Saint Louis FC will play regional rivals Louisville City FC and Memphis 901 FC three times over the course of the season. The club will host Louisville City FC twice on June 13th and September 9th and travel to Memphis 901 FC twice on March 14th and September 12th, respectively.
Single-game tickets for all home games will go on sale in the coming weeks. Season tickets for all 17 regular season home games are on sale now and group reservations can also be placed for any home game to secure group experiences.

Following the conclusion of the regular season, the top 10 teams from both the Eastern and Western Conferences will qualify for the 2020 USL Championship Playoffs, which will open with the Eastern and Western Conference Wild Card Round on Wednesday, October 21. The Eastern and Western Conference Quarterfinals will then be held between October 24-25, the Eastern and Western Conference Semifinals between October 30-November 1 and the Eastern and Western Conference Finals between November 6-8.
