Sky Blue to host Western NY on April 14
MORRISTOWN, N.J. - Sky Blue FC unveiled its National Women's Soccer League schedule on Tuesday, with the team returning for a fourth season of play at Yurcak Field AT Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J.
The team will play a 22-match season, kicking off the season at Yurcak Field against the Western New York Flash and Abby Wambach at 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 14.
"First and foremost, it is certainly nice to know who our opening weekend opponent will be," Sky Blue head coach Jim Gabarra said. "Most importantly, we now know when we are playing long stretches of home and away games, and we can cross-reference upcoming FIFA dates to know when we may be missing national team players. Overall, we now have a good feeling of how the season will go in terms of player management, which will be critical in our game-to-game preparation."
Sky Blue FC also revealed ticket information, with choices of general admission, center circle club and on-field seats available. General admission tickets are $14 for matches ($110 for season tickets), while center circle club seats are $22 for games ($200 for season tickets). On-field seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, priced individually at $60 and $500 for the season. Tickets can be purchased today by calling 888-SBFC-TIX.
Yurcak Field seats 5,000 spectators and it has served as the home venue for Sky Blue in each of its three previous season.
