Major League Soccer unveiled the full 2019 regular season schedule on Monday, and so now we know Los Angeles Football Club’s slate for the season ahead.
LAFC kick off their season on March 3 at home against Sporting Kansas City, a fixture previously announced last month. It’s the first in a 34-game regular season campaign, that will stretch to Decision Day on Oct. 6, when all of the games will take place simultaneously, with LAFC hosting the Colorado Rapids in that final fixture.
MLS teams play each conference foe home and away once each this year, and play all of the opposing conference teams once total. The venue is on a rotating basis, so if a fixture against an Eastern Conference opponent took place away last year, it will be home this season.
The black-and-gold will have 16 games on national television in 2019, second-most in the league behind just Atlanta United, who have 17 nationally televised games.
Of particular note, the El Trafico games will come this year on July 19 and August 25, the former hosted at LA Galaxy’s stadium and the latter at LAFC’s Banc of California Stadium.
