LA Galaxy II announce 2017 USL regular season schedule

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017) LA Galaxy II announced today the 32-game schedule for the 2017 United Soccer League (USL) Regular Season. Los Dos will kick off the 2017 campaign at StubHub Center Track & Field Stadium on Saturday, March 25 when they host Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2. Kickoff times for all LA Galaxy II matches will be announced on later dates.

As part of the schedule, LA Galaxy II will face each team in the USL Western Conference at least twice in the 2017 season (one home, one away). With the four remaining games, Los Dos will take on Phoenix Rising FC, Orange County SC and Rio Grande Valley FC Toros in a third, additional match. And in a rare piece of scheduling, LA Galaxy II will play New York Red Bulls II in a regular season meetup of Eastern and Western Conference sides, a match paired as a doubleheader to the LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls MLS match on May 14 at Red Bulls Arena.

USL teams will play 32 games in 2017, two more than they did in 2016. The league also welcomes three expansion teams ahead of the season: Ottawa Fury FC, Tampa Bay Rowdies and Reno 1968 FC. Reno 1968 was added to the Western Conference and St. Louis FC was transferred back to the Eastern Conference, joining the Fury and the Rowdies, to form two 15-team conferences.

The top eight teams in each conference will qualify for postseason play that will include Conference Quarterfinals (Oct. 20-22), Semifinals (Oct. 27-29) and Final (Nov. 3-5). The 2017 USL Cup Final will be played the weekend of November 10-12.

2017 will mark Los Dos’ fourth year in the USL, but the first for new LA Galaxy II Head Coach Mike Muñoz and his staff after former manager Curt Onalfo was named LA Galaxy Head Coach. Muñoz will lead a team that, under Onalfo, qualified for the USL playoffs in all three seasons of the club’s existence.

In 2016, Los Dos finished fifth in the USL Western Conference. The team finished with a 12-7-11 record on the season and were led in goals by Jack McBean (15) and co-led in assists by Adonis Amaya and Jose Villarreal (5). In the first round of the playoffs, LA Galaxy II were eliminated in a 3-0 loss to Swope Park Rangers on the road in Kansas City, Mo.

All-time, LA Galaxy II hold a 41-25-20 regular season record. Key returnees to Los Dos include 2016 standouts Adonis Amaya, Jaime Villarreal and Nathan Smith. Nine of the 10 players on the LA Galaxy II roster are products of the LA Galaxy Academy.

LA Galaxy II Season Ticket Memberships are on sale now. With an additional home game added to the 2017 schedule, fans can still become a Los Dos Season Ticket Member for under $100. Season Ticket Memberships purchased prior to February 25th will include an invitation to LA Galaxy’s Annual Season Ticket Member Rally, February 26th.
