    He likes the schedule that MLS uses as well? I wouldn’t have thought that.

  2. Andy Muenz says:

    Schedule is out on the Union website. Looks like there are breaks in June, Sept, and Oct for FIFA dates (but not for the Gold Cup). Union only have one home game from May 30 – July 17 (on June 23). If I can read it correctly (since it just has opponents logos rather than names), only two games against Western conference teams, home against Portland and in Minnesota.
