February 12, 2013 - National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) - Sky Blue FC
Morristown, N.J. (Tuesday, February 12, 2013) - Sky Blue FC unveiled its 2013 National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) schedule on Tuesday, with the team returning for a fourth season of play at Yurcak Field on the campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey. The team will play a 22-match split of home and away games, kicking off the season at Yurcak Field against the Western New York Flash at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 14th.
"First and foremost, it is certainly nice to know who our opening weekend opponent will be," Sky Blue FC head coach Jim Gabarra remarked. "Most importantly, we now know when we are playing long stretches of home and away games, and we can cross-reference upcoming FIFA dates to know when we may be missing national team players. Overall, we now have a good feeling of how the season will go in terms of player management, which will be critical in our game-to-game preparation."
Also revealed by Sky Blue FC on Tuesday was ticket information for the 2013 season, with choices of general admission, center circle club and on-field seats available. General admission tickets are just $14 for individual matches ($110 for season tickets), while center circle club seats are $22 for individual games ($200 for season tickets). On-field seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, priced individually at $60 and $500 for the season. Tickets can be purchased today by calling 888-SBFC-TIX.
Yurcak Field seats 5,000 spectators in its facility, and it has served as the home venue for Sky Blue FC in each of its three previous years of professional play.
