January 22, 2018 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Seattle Sounders FC News Release

SEATTLE, WASH. - The United Soccer League on Friday unveiled the complete 2018 Sounders FC 2 regular season schedule, featuring 17 home matches at Cheney Stadium during the club's first campaign in Tacoma. The 34-game slate begins on Friday, March 16 with a home match against Cascadia rival Portland Timbers 2. Kickoff times for each match are being announced at a later date.

In addition to two visits from Timbers 2 and the home season finale against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, Cheney Stadium and S2 host USL rivals Fresno FC, Real Monarchs SLC, Rio Grande Valley FC Toros, Sacramento Republic FC, OKC Energy FC, Swope Park Rangers, Reno 1868 FC, Las Vegas Lights, San Antonio FC, Saint Louis FC, Orange County SC, Tulsa Roughnecks FC, Phoenix Rising FC and LA Galaxy II.

In November of 2017, Seattle Sounders FC and the Tacoma Rainiers announced that beginning in 2018, Sounders FC 2's previously-announced transition to Tacoma is accelerating, allowing S2 to play its home matches at Cheney Stadium, while progress continues toward a new soccer-specific facility. The two clubs previously reached a historic agreement to build a 5,000-seat facility in Central Tacoma on the footprint of Cheney Stadium. While that process moves forward, South Sound soccer fans are now able to see their USL side play in Tacoma several seasons ahead of schedule.
