ST. LOUIS – In just over two months, St. Louis CITY SC kicks off its inaugural season as the 29th club in Major League Soccer.
The league released the 2023 schedule for all clubs on Tuesday, just days after the conclusion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Each club will play 34 league matches over the 8-month season.
CITY SC starts the 2023 campaign on the road, taking on Austin FC on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023. The team has its home opener at CITYPARK on Saturday, March 4, 2023, against Charlotte FC. St. Louis will play 26 of its 34 matches on Saturdays. Two matches will be played on Sundays, five on Wednesdays, and one on the Fourth of July at the LA Galaxy.
The club will have three nationally-televised matches this season, all at CITYPARK. FOX will broadcast the June 11 match against the LA Galaxy, with FS1 airing matches with Sporting KC (May 20) and Austin FC (Aug. 20). However, every CITY SC match will be broadcast live through MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.
And, if rumors prove true, and Lionel Messi, World Cup hero and widely regarded as the world’s best player, jumps to the MLS to play for Inter Miami CF, St. Louis would host one of soccer’s GOATs on July 15, 2023.
The regular season ends with an Oct. 21, 2023, home match against the Seattle Sounders FC.
CITY SC’s full schedule can be found below in graphic form. The print schedule will be beneath that.
