Eastern Conference Final's Kickoff Time Adjusted

October 19, 2020 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Louisville City FC News Release

Louisville City FC has received approval from the USL Championship to shift its kickoff time to 7:30 p.m. ET for Saturday's Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

Season ticket members are undergoing an opt-in process to secure their admission to the league's national semifinal. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Tuesday at or by calling (502) LOU-CITY, option 2.

This weekend's start time was initially billed as 7 p.m. to avoid any overlap with the respective Western Conference Final. Phoenix Rising FC is set to host El Paso Locomotive FC at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Both USL games Saturday will air nationally on ESPN+. Locally, LouCity-Tampa Bay can also be watched on WBKI/The CW, listened to on AM 790 WKRD and live streamed via the WDRB Now app.

LouCity hasn't lost since the calendar turned to August, continuing a run of 13 games unbeaten last weekend when defeating Saint Louis FC by a 2-0 score in the conference semifinal.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies defeated the Charleston Battery, 1-0, in their most-recent playoff game with the winner scored by super sub Lucky Mksona, a former LouCity forward.

Winners of Saturday's national semifinals will advance to the USL Cup Final - the USL's first game to air on ESPN - at 8:30 p.m. ET on Nov. 1.
