Reno 1868 FC will meet its rival, Sacramento Republic, three times during the regular season. The first regular season match between both sides will be at Greater Nevada Field Saturday, June 10. The two then meet at Bonney Field August 19 and in Reno 1868’s home finale October 14.

Reno 1868 FC will play six different MLS owned teams in downtown Reno. The first will be against Vancouver Whitecaps 2 Saturday, April 1. The next home match against an MLS owned team will bring Seattle Sounders 2 on Saturday, May 20. The club will then face LA Galaxy 2 Monday, July 3 and Portland Timbers 2 Saturday, July 22.
