Chicago returns to SeatGeek Stadium on September 20 against Sky Blue FC
CHICAGO (September 1, 2020) – The National Women’s Soccer League today released the schedule for the first three weeks of the 2020 fall series. The Chicago Red Stars are scheduled to open up their fall series against the Washington Spirit on Saturday, September 12 at 11 am CT live on Twitch.
Chicago will play its first game at SeatGeek Stadium in 2020 the following week against Sky Blue FC on Sunday, September 20 at 12 pm CT. While fans will not be in attendance, the game will be viewable on CBS All-Access.
There will be a televised NWSL Game of the Week on the CBS Television Network every Saturday in September and on CBS Sports Network three Saturdays in October. CBS All Access will exclusively stream four games as well as the CBS broadcast coverage in September. Twitch will exclusively stream seven games globally, including in the United States, and every game internationally.
The three teams in each regional pod will each play four games. Those pods are:
Portland Thorns FC
Utah Royals FC
Chicago Red Stars
Sky Blue FC
North Carolina Courage
The full schedule for the initial three weeks of the series is available below. Highlights include the NWSL Game of the Week on CBS each Saturday in September and on CBSSN on three Saturdays in October. Those games will feature every NWSL club at least once, including OL Reign at Portland Thorns FC on September 12 and Orlando Pride at North Carolina Courage on September 19. The remaining games will be announced in the next week.
The NWSL’s return to play protocols reflect the best practices previously developed by the NWSL Medical Task Force and successfully implemented during the Challenge Cup. Those protocols have been updated to reflect the reality of home-market matches and regional travel and will influence all league and club actions outside the field of play.
