Earlier today, the USL Championship released its 2019 schedule, giving us the dates that D.C. United’s USL team, Loudoun United FC, will play in its debut season. It was previously revealed that Loudoun’s first game would be March 9 at Nashville SC, and their home opener would be on May 3 against Bethlehem Steel FC. Following a seven-game road trip to start the season, Loudoun plays 17 of their last 27 at home, finishing their slate with a home game against New York Red Bulls II in a USL version of the Atlantic Cup.

Three of those home games are on a Wednesday. Weeknight games were a mild sore spot voiced by members of the Board of Supervisors during hearings to approve funding for the stadium and training site, so these are presumably evening timeslots (kickoff times were not yet listed).

The other question for Loudoun is the readiness of their as-yet-unnamed stadium. Ground has recently been cleared for the site, but we don’t have an ETA for materials and assembly. All of the 2019 games are currently listed for Audi Field, though it remains to be seen how many games will actually be played there. In any case, there are 79 days until Loudoun’s opener, so business on and off the field should pick up shortly.

The complete schedule is as follows:
