Reno 1868 FC Release


Three regular season matchups against new in-state rival Las Vegas Lights FC headline Reno 1868 FC’s 2018 schedule, which was released Friday.

Reno 1868 FC’s first match will be on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) in a match against Western Conference foe Swope Park Rangers. The match will be sponsored by Dolan Auto Group.

Tickets for the 2018 season go on sale online on Feb. 3 at 10 a.m.

After the opener against Swope, Reno heads south to take on new rival and expansion club Las Vegas Lights FC on March 24 at Cashman Field. The match will be one of three meetings in 2018.

“We know how anxious our fans have been to receive our schedule, and we believe it has been worth the wait,” Reno president Eric Edelstein said. “With 16 total Saturday matches, our community will have more opportunity than ever to be a part of the fastest growing spectator sport in North America.”

Reno head coach Ian Russell said the 2018 schedule is both challenging for the players and exciting for the fans.

“These matchups offer great competition in our second season,” Russell said. “We look forward to playing these highly-competitive matches against our Western Conference foes including new opponents such as Las Vegas, Fresno and St. Louis.”

Prior to the 2018 regular season, Reno will face a number of preseason matchups including the club’s first trip to Avaya Stadium to take on MLS affiliate San Jose on Feb. 10. Reno will also face Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC at home March 3.
