USL unveiled the home openers for all teams for the 2017 season on Friday, and as a result we know the dates and opponents of three of Orange County SC’s matches.

Most notably, OCSC has the last home opener of the league this year, where they will open against local rivals LA Galaxy II at a still to-be-announced venue on May 6.

The season itself starts on March 25, and Orange County will face brand-new USL side Reno 1868 that day. So there will be six weeks between the start of the season and Orange County’s home debut.

One other fixture for OCSC was announced, on April 1 at Sacramento Republic.

The rest of the 2017 regular season schedule, including specific times, is expected to drop soon, possibly next week. And the news of the schedule details being released means it’s quite likely Orange County SC will be announcing their 2017 venue information shortly.

It’s unclear if Orange County will go on a fairly long road trip to start the season, or if the schedule will be more backloaded with byes coming in the opening month of the campaign. That will obviously be revealed when the rest of the schedule drops.
