2022 Schedule

06 November 2021 - 01:24 PM

Short offseason (Season starts Feb. 26) , early Decision Day (Oct.9), MLS Cup (Nov.5).

34 matches, Home and Away vs each team in our Conference (26 matches in total). Charlotte joins Eastern Conference, with Nashville (not Chicago) moving to the Western Conference. The 8 other matches will be non-Conference (which I feel diminishes the Shield).

5 or fewer weekday matches, all others on the weekends. The weekday matches won't be back-to-back weeks. 1 in each of May, June, and July, with 2 in August.

Teams need to request to play during the FIFA breaks.


New MLS Reserve League in 2022

21 June 2021 - 08:59 AM

Per an ESPN report, MLS Reserve League is starting in 2022 with about 20 teams. By 2023, all MLS teams will be in the reserve league which will include independent teams as well. Applied for D3 sanctioning.

Up until last year I'd say it was a bad move for the Red Bulls to leave the USL Championship, but it's clear the direction is 100% focused on development, not necessarily winning.


Mistakes of the offseason

Protected Barlow who can't hit the broadside if a barn. Mostly only scored at the USL level from passes from the same guy who we lost...
