Riverhounds Full 2022 Schedule Announced

January 12, 2022 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC News Release

PITTSBURGH - The full USL Championship schedule for the 2022 season was announced this afternoon, and Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC's 34-game slate includes some new destinations and a chance to get reacquainted with some familiar foes.

Among the highlights of the 2022 schedule are four road trips to face Western Conference opponents - the first time the Hounds have hit the Mountain or Pacific time zones since 2014 - huge summer home games against Indy Eleven, Miami FC and the Eastern Conference champ Tampa Bay Rowdies, and a late-season visit from defending league champion Orange County SC.

Once again, all USL Championship matches will be streamed via ESPN+, with the exception of those airing live on ESPN or ESPN2.

The Hounds will begin their quest for a fifth consecutive playoff berth under coach Bob Lilley with two already announced matches, at Memphis 901 FC on March 12 and against Hartford Athletic on March 19 to kick off the 10th season calling Highmark Stadium home. The team's other match in the opening month is a March 26 trip to face USL newcomers Detroit City FC.

Moving down a balanced schedule - the Hounds do not have more than two consecutive home or away matches - the team will make first-ever trips to face FC Tulsa and the Las Vegas Lights in April.

The trip to Las Vegas on April 16 is the first of eight matches against Western Conference teams, as the Hounds also travel to face Rio Grande Valley (June 18), New Mexico (July 16) and Sacramento (Oct. 9). Coming to Highmark Stadium from the West are El Paso (May 14), Orange County (Sept. 24), San Antonio (Oct. 1) and Oakland (Oct. 15) for both teams' regular-season finale.

The Hounds also get a pair of matches against all their traditional rivals, including fellow Old Guard club Charleston Battery (away June 11, home Aug. 31) and regular nemesis Louisville City FC (away April 30, home Sept. 10), who the Hounds did not face last year for the first time since Louisville joined the league.

The Hounds complete schedule is available below, and it is attached in a plain-text version for newspaper use. Kickoff times are to be determined and will be announced at a later date.

Season tickets and multi-game flexbook ticket packages are already on sale, and the on-sale date for single-game tickets will be announced soon.
