Memphis 901 FC Opens the Stephen Glass era at AutoZone Park on March 11
Memphis, Tenn. – The USL Championship on Monday released fixtures for the upcoming 2023 regular season, Memphis 901 FC’s fifth season in the competition.
The 34-match schedule includes 18 home matches at AutoZone Park, including the season opener against Loudoun United FC on Saturday, March 11, followed by a showdown with Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on March 18. 901 FC will host 14 weekend matches at AutoZone Park in 2023.
“We’re looking forward to a lot of great nights at AutoZone Park this year,” Head Coach Stephen Glass said. “Opening up with two home games gives us a big opportunity. I know the players are excited to get back in front of the fans and I’m excited to get going.”
901 FC drew two three-match home stands while the longest road trip will have the club on four-consecutive away matches from July 29 to August 12.
Notable matchups include a rematch of the 2022 Eastern Conference semifinal against the Tampa Bay Rowdies on September 9 at AutoZone Park and a home matchup with defending champion San Antonio FC on July 7, the only Friday fixture on the 2023 schedule.
In a balanced schedule format, 901 FC will play each Eastern Conference team twice, once home and once away, and each Western Conference team once. Every team in the league will square off at least once for the first time since the USL Championship instituted a two-conference format in 2015.
The regular season will run from March 11 to October 14 with the top eight teams from each conference qualifying for the 2023 USL Championship Playoffs. Official kickoff times and single ticket sales will be finalized in the coming weeks. Fans can visit the 901 FC website for season ticket availability.
