New York City FC Announces First Three 2022 MLS Matches Including Home Opener on March 12 at Yankee Stadium

November 22, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New York City FC News Release

NEW YORK - Following the Club's victory over Atlanta United last night in the first round of the 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs, NYCFC is excited to announce the first three matches of the 2022 regular season.

First up, NYCFC will begin the 2022 regular season on the road against the LA Galaxy on Sunday, February 27 at 5:00 p.m. ET. A week later, the Club will play on the road again against Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, March 5 at 6:00 p.m. ET.

On Saturday, March 12, Yankee Stadium will host the Club's home opener - presented by Etihad Airways - against CF Montréal at 2:00 p.m. ET.

NYCFC opens on the road for the eighth consecutive season and holds a 2-3-2 overall record during the first week of the campaign. This will be the first meeting between the two Clubs to start a season - with NYCFC winning in its last four League matches against the Galaxy. NYCFC hosted the Galaxy for the Club's home opener at Yankee Stadium during the 2018 season, resulting in a 2-1 win for the Boys in Blue.

NYCFC will then travel to play Vancouver - a side the Club holds a 3-1-1 record against - before welcoming Montréal to the Bronx. NYCFC boasts an impressive record against Montréal, remaining unbeaten in 12 of 14 regular season meetings.

The full 2022 regular season schedule will be released by MLS in the coming weeks and tickets for NYCFC's home opener will be made available shortly thereafter. NYCFC's 2022 City Members will have first priority for opening day tickets - and tickets for all remaining home matches in 2022. City Members will receive detailed 2022 ticket information in the coming weeks.
