Highmark Stadium – Pittsburgh’s Mecca for Soccer
The Pittsburgh Riverhounds have announced start times for their home dates for the 2017 season. Hosting 16 matches at Highmark Stadium this year, the Hounds will play their first two games at 5 p.m. with the remaining 14 starting at 7 p.m.

The club kicks off 2017 with back-to-back matches at home, facing the defending USL champion New York Red Bulls II on Saturday, March 25 and FC Cincinnati the following weekend on Saturday, April 1.

The early kickoffs for the March and early April games may provide for slightly warmer weather earlier in the day, and it appears there’s no conflicts for the Hounds with Penguins games on either Saturday.

Hopefully for the Hounds, this will help with attendance and help the team get off to a positive start at the gate after seeing attendance taper off in the past few years.

In addition, the Hounds will be hosting at least one Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup tournament game (likely May 17 or 31?) — and two preseason friendlies (see our Riverhounds page for full preseason schedule).
