Surprise! Saturday’s Riverhounds SC-TFCII tilt moved to Pittsburgh

Riverhounds SC has announced its originally scheduled road date against Toronto FC II on Saturday, April 7 has been moved to Highmark Stadium. Now scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m. this Saturday, the venue change comes due to unplayable field conditions at BMO Field.

All tickets to the match are general admission and will cost $5. Season ticket holders can attend the match for free. Club access, which includes a cash bar, will be available the day of the game for an additional $10 – cash only – on top of a general admission ticket at the door. A link to purchase tickets will be available shortly.

Please note the Highmark Stadium Pub will be open. Gates are scheduled to open at 2 p.m., and the Pub will be serving $1 beers leading up to kickoff. Admission on gameday will only be accepted at the West End Gate of the stadium.

Additionally, fans can stream Saturday’s match live on YouTube.

The change in venue will not affect the Hounds’ scheduled dates with Toronto later in the year, as the clubs will still face each other on May 5 in Rochester, New York before meeting again in Pittsburgh on August 4.
