NYRBII: USL announces 2019 home openers

Friday afternoon, the USL Championship announced the home openers for all 36 teams. The New York Red Bulls II roster is still a mystery, but we know what team they will face to open the season.

NYRBII open their season at MSU Soccer Park in Montclair, New Jersey, on March 9th. They face their one time USL Championship foe the Swope Park Rangers.

SPR moved to the Eastern Conference during the USL’s offseason conference realignment along with St. Louis FC. The last time NYRBII faced SPR came in the 2016 USL Championship game. The “Montclair Minors” beat the Western Conference champion Rangers 5-1.
