Utah Royals FC to Begin NWSL Fall Series at Portland Thorns FC
SANDY, Utah - Utah Royals FC returns to competition and begins its 2020 National Women's Soccer League Fall Series campaign on Sunday, September 20 at Providence Park against Portland Thorns FC. The game is slated to kickoff at 1:00 p.m. MT and can be watched live on Twitch.

When facing Portland, URFC has a 1-2-3 record, with one win and two draws in the 2019 season. Last year Utah was one of only two teams Portland failed to beat, the other being OL Reign.
