Hounds move Bethlehem Steel FC match to Sept 7 to avoid conflict with Pitt-PSU

Riverhounds SC have announced a schedule change to its September home match with Bethlehem Steel FC.

The Riverhounds SC and Steel FC meeting is moved up one day to 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7 at Highmark Stadium to avoid conflict with the collegiate football game between the University of Pittsburgh and Penn State University, which is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8 at Heinz Field. The Hounds were originally scheduled to play Bethlehem at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8 at Highmark Stadium.

Fans who have purchased tickets for the original date of this game will still have their tickets honored for this match after the schedule change.
