El Paso Locomotive FC Unveils 2020 Return to Play Schedule
EL PASO, TEXAS - El Paso Locomotive FC unveiled its 2020 Regular Season Return to Play schedule in conjunction with USL Championship today. The Locomotive Return to Play schedule boasts eight games at Southwest University Park, five of which are played on Saturdays. Locomotive FC kicks off its return to play with an inter-group match as the Copa Tejas rivalry reignites against Rio Grande Valley FC.
The Locos resume the 2020 Regular Season as part of Group C alongside Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, New Mexico United, and 2019 USL Championship title winners Real Monarchs. Featuring three playoff teams - two of which were Western Conference finalists - and a rejuvenated Colorado side, Group C boasts high caliber teams that will bring fierce competition for a 2020 playoff spot.
Locomotive is set to play each team in its group four times in a two-home and two-away format, rounding out the remaining three games with inter-group play against Texas rivals Rio Grande Valley FC and San Antonio FC as well as 2019 Regular Season title winners Phoenix Rising FC.
After opening the Return to Play season against RGVFC, Locomotive welcomes New Mexico United for back-to-back games at Southwest University Park on July 15 and July 24. Locomotive FC highlights each Saturday in August starting with a contest away against Phoenix Rising and home and away matches with Colorado Springs and Real Monarchs.
September proves to be the tightest month with 6 games slated. The Locos play on each Saturday while playing Switchbacks FC on two separate Wednesdays, however, September is highlighted with three straight home matches at Southwest University Park. The 2020 season comes to a head with a 2019 Western Conference final rematch on October 4th as Locomotive FC travels to Utah to play Real Monarchs.
Locomotive FC holds a 2-1-3 (9 points) record across all three teams in its group. Throughout its 2019 inaugural campaign, the Locos swept the Colorado series with two wins, recorded a loss and a draw against New Mexico United, while playing to scoreless draws against the Monarchs.
