OCSC will open its campaign on March 17 with a matchup with Phoenix Rising FC at Champions Soccer Stadium, their new home at Orange County Great Park in Irvine. The following week, OCSC will host Sacramento Republic SC before closing out March with a pair of road games — OKC Energy FC on March 28 and at the Tulsa Roughnecks FC on March 31.
