HERRIMAN/SANDY, Utah - Real Salt Lake announced plans for its 2019 preseason today as the club begins preparations for its 15th season in Major League Soccer.
This year, RSL will hold camp in four different locations beginning with one day at the club's Zions Bank Real Academy training facility in Herriman, Utah, on Monday, January 21.

The club will continue camp in Herriman for eight days before travelling to Hawaii for its debut in the Pacific Rim Cup where it will play two matches in a six-day span. The next stop for RSL is Tucson, Arizona where club will then spend nearly two weeks where it will face three fellow MLS clubs and USL Championship Western Conference Champion Phoenix Rising FC.
