The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) recently announced the full 2022 regular season schedule for its 10th anniversary season. NJ/NY Gotham FC’s fixture features a single table, 22-match regular season with 11 home games and 11 away games.
Gotham FC opens up the season with a pair of road matches at the Orlando Pride on Sunday, May 1 (7 p.m. ET) and San Diego on Saturday, May 7 (10 p.m. ET). The club’s home opener at Red Bull Arena is slated for Saturday, May 14 against the North Carolina Courage for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
At least two home games a month will be featured between May and October.
The club will be playing at a location to be determined on Saturday, August 20 to take on the Orlando Pride. Additional details and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
Gotham FC will end the regular season at home at Red Bull Arena on Saturday, October 1 for a matchup with the Portland Thorns at 6 p.m. ET. The top six teams at the end of the regular season will advance to the NWSL Playoffs, with the top two seeds receiving a first-round bye. The 2022 NWSL Championship is scheduled for Saturday, October 29.
As part of the league’s balanced framework for 2022, a significantly smaller number of contests have been scheduled during FIFA windows, allowing for fewer conflicts for the league’s most accomplished players who compete with both club and country. Several Gotham FC players are expected to earn call-ups for international competition.
The 2022 regular season will air across The CBS Television Network and CBS Sports Network and stream live on Paramount+. Twitch, the home for all internationally streamed matches, will also stream select games in the United States. Television details for regular-season matches will be shared in the coming weeks.
