First Battery fixtures set as USL unveil home opener schedule
USL have gone a short ways to lift the lid on the 2017 season, announcing the league’s full slate of home openers for the new campaign on Friday evening.
The Battery will welcome FC Cincinnati to MUSC Health Stadium on March 25th. We’ll kick off 2017, our 25th season, as we did 2016, when we played Cincy in their first ever USL match. The two sides also met in the playoffs last season, in what ended up being a dramatic win for the Black and Yellow.
The Battery also know the date of a second fixture, as they travel to Charlotte on the first of April. The sides compete in the Southern Derby Cup, which the Battery took home last season.
The full schedule, at time of writing, still hasn’t been released, though it’s nice for team and fans alike to have some insight on how the season will begin. There are less than two months to go until the season begins, and less than a month until the 2017 edition of the Carolina Challenge Cup.
Be sure to check back here for updates as we continue into the home stretch until the new season.
