Sky Blue FC unveiled its 2013 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) schedule, with the team returning for a fourth season of play at Yurcak Field on the campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway. The team will play a 22-match split of home and away games, kicking off the season at Yurcak Field against the Western New York Flash at 6 p.m. on April 14.
“First and foremost, it is certainly nice to know who our opening weekend opponent will be,” Sky Blue FC head coach Jim Gabarra said in a club press release. “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.”
