Monterey Bay F.C. Visits Autozone Park for Fixture with Memphis 901 FC

April 19, 2024 - United Soccer League Championship (USL)
Monterey Bay FC News Release

MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Monterey Bay F.C. (3-1-2, 11 points) travels to Tennessee for a fixture with Western Conference newcomer Memphis 901 FC (1-4-0, 3 points). The match kicks off at 5:00 p.m. PT on Saturday at AutoZone Park in Week 7 of the 2024 USL Championship regular season. Live streaming of the match will be available on ESPN+.

Monterey Bay F.C. comes into the match against Memphis 901 FC on the back of two consecutive wins in league play and three consecutive wins overall after the Club's win over Irvine Zeta FC in the Third Round of the 2024 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday night. Currently, the Crisp-and-Kelp sit alone in third place in the Western Conference after a solid start to the campaign.

On the other side, Memphis 901 FC is struggling to collect its footing amidst an ongoing four-game losing skid in league play and will look to get back on track in the comforts of home on Saturday night. Memphis did, however, secure victory in its respective U.S. Open Cup match on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win over Miami United to curb its slide overall, but when it comes to league competition, 901 FC's move to the Western Conference has been anything but friendly thus far.

Monterey Bay and Memphis have only faced off one other time in the two clubs' histories - a 1-0 win for the Seasiders behind an Alex Dixon penalty kick in the first half at AutoZone Park last September. Memphis' first trip to Seaside is coming up quickly, but for now, the second-ever meetings between the sides will take place right back in Memphis, where 901 FC has already lost twice this season.
