  1. Union home opener next season is February 26 against Minnesota (and we just paid for our vacation starting February 25 🙁 🙁 🙁 .) They are in Montreal the following week for their opener and in Nashville May 1 for theirs.

    • Thanks, Andy!

      Is that a typo or is Nashville’s opener several months into the season? Thanks for the info as always, but I assume you meant March.

      • Not a typo, it is May 1. It looks like Nashville is getting a new stadium (Nashville SC Stadium is how it’s listed on MLS.com) so they are probably playing their first 2 months on the road to allow time for it to be completed.
        .
        With luck, the Union will be the first team to win there.
