Sounders U23 2014 Schedule Released

The U23s kick off their third season of play, trying to get back in the playoffs after just missing out last season.

The schedule for the Sounders U23 exhibition and PDL seasons was released on Friday, promising another season of competitive Northwest Division action in the South Sound. The home games will mostly be played in Sumner, in the Auburn-Puyallup metroplex. But there are also a couple of matches at Curtis High School in Tacoma and one at Tumwater High School south of Olympia, and a 'home' match in the local derby against Crossfire at Starfire. And in July there are two 'away' matches in Redmond and Issaquah versus Crossfire and North Sound respectively which will actually be more convenient for Seattle-area Sounders fans.

The roster for the team hasn't been assembled yet, but based on previous seasons you can expect it to be a mix of Sounders Academy alumni in college, players from local colleges, and a handful of players from elsewhere in the country (like Akron's Aodhan Quinn who played multiple seasons for the team).

The exhibition season is in early May and includes two matches against local colleges and a double header with the Sounders Women in Bellingham, then the regular season runs from mid-May to mid-July. Here's the full schedule:
