The opponents out of group for Sacramento will be LA Galaxy II, Orange County SC and San Diego Loyal, all expected teams that could be SRFC opponents based on their proximity.
So the schedule is out. You won’t be able to go to games right off the bat at Papa Murphy’s Park, but if we can finally, finally get coronavirus under control, then maybe it will happen down the line this season.
