2013 NWSL Schedule: Seattle Reign open with three on road

Christian Petersen

Reign's home opener will come on May 4 and their first match against the Portland Thorns is in the second week.

The schedule maker didn't do the Seattle Reign any favors. Perhaps as a result of their home stadium taking longer than most teams to lock down, they'll open with three matches on the road and four of their first five away from Starfire Sports Complex. Their home-opener will be on May 4 against FC Kansas City.

Those three weeks will take them from Chicago to Portland and back to Kansas City.

The other tough portion of the schedule will come in the final weeks, as three of four games in August will be on road. Their only home game that month is the regular-season finale against the Portland Thorns.

The Reign plays Portland, Chicago Red Stars and FC Kansas City four times (2 home, 2 away). The Reign meet the Washington Spirit (2 home, 1 away) and Western New York Flash (2 away, 1 home) on three occasions and face both Sky Blue FC and Boston Breakers in a home and home .

Of the Reign's 22 matches, 14 of them will come from June-August. That means that Megan Rapinoe and Teresa Noyola, who are under contract in Europe, should be available for more than half the team's games.

The top four teams will qualify for the playoffs. The semifinals will be held on Aug. 24 and the championship will be Aug. 31.
