On the field, the club is promoting a ‘Summer of Soccer’ with 10 home fixtures in June and July.

The June 3 visit from frequent Western Conference frontrunner Phoenix Rising FC will make its first trip to the Steel City since 2014.

Longtime rival Charleston Battery (June 10) and relative newcomers San Diego Loyal (June 24) keep the action going leading up to a rematch from last season’s playoffs and a shot at payback for the Hounds, a July 1 visit from Louisville City FC.

The Hounds have five total home matches in the month of July, including the start of a four-game homestand against all Eastern Conference foes from July 26-Aug. 12. And on the back end of the schedule, the Hounds will wrap up the regular season at Highmark Stadium with fall home games against New Mexico United (Sept. 23) and FC Tulsa (Sept. 30).

USL Championship today announced its full 2023 schedule, with the 13th season in the league’s history set to feature a 408-game regular season over 32 weeks with each team playing 34 matches in the quest to earn a berth to the 2023 USL Championship Playoffs.

The 2023 USL Championship season will feature 87 percent of its games on weekend dates (Friday-Sunday), with 76 percent of regular season games set to be played on Saturdays.

In addition to the USL Championship regular season schedule, the Hounds will likely play exhibition schedule that will begin in early Feburary and last through early March.

The club is also expected to partcipate in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, as proper tournament information and schedule will be announced soon, as the USL Championship clubs are expected to enter the tournament in the second round, beginning April 4-6.
