Orlando Pride has released its 24-game schedule for the 2019 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season. For the third consecutive season, the Pride will play a 24-game season with 12 games at Orlando City Stadium and 12 games on the road.
The full schedule for the Pride’s complete 2019 season, presented by Orlando Health, can be at the link here.
Season ticket and group ticket packages are currently available by calling (855) ORL-CITY or at orlando-pride.com/tickets. Group pricing starts at just $17 a ticket for parties of 15 or more. Single-game ticketing information will be announced at a later date.
Orlando will begin the season with three matches over the first week, first opening the year against Portland Thorns FC at Orlando City Stadium on Sunday, April 14. This will be the third time in four years Orlando kicks off a campaign against Portland, but the first time it will host the match at Orlando City Stadium. The Pride previously traveled to Portland for the 2016 and 2017 season openers. Immediately following the home opener, the Pride will travel to North Carolina to play the reigning NWSL champions, the North Carolina Courage. Orlando then heads cross-country to take on Reign FC, which recently relocated to Tacoma, Wash.
Orlando will see an even split in its schedule, playing six home games over the first 12 matches and another six home games in its final half of the season. The Club will have the benefit of a three-game homestand from July 20 to Aug. 17, which also includes a 21-day break between the July 20 and Aug. 10 matches.
With the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup taking place in France this year, the Pride will play their first match following the World Cup final on July 14 at Portland and later hosting Sky Blue FC on July 20 in their first home game after the tournament.
Orlando fans will also be treated to a two-match weekend at Orlando City Stadium in late July, as the Pride host Sky Blue FC on Saturday, July 20 and Major League Soccer side Orlando City SC host New York Red Bulls the following day.
Orlando will face each of the other eight teams three times throughout the season. The league will take a 12-day break from June 3-14 during the group stage of the Women’s World Cup before returning to action on the weekend of June 15-16.
The final weekend of the 2019 regular season will be held Oct. 12-13 with playoffs starting a week later, including two semifinal matches on Oct. 19-20 and the NWSL Championship on Saturday, Oct. 26.
All of the NWSL’s regular season matches will be streamed on Yahoo!Sports while international fans will be able to watch games on the NWSL app and NWSLsoccer.com.
