USL Championship Race for Home Field Advantage

We are down to the final weekend of the 2020 USL Championship Regular season, plenty of playoff spots re locked up but there is still a lot to play for. There is a three way tie for the top spot and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. San Antonio FC is in the mix to finish with the most points in the USL but will need some help.

Here is the table for the race for the top spot in the USL

Reno 1868 FC –

@ Tacoma Defiance 10.03.2020 at 9:00 PM; Reno has an excellent shot to finish on top as they end the regular season in Tacoma versus the lowly Defiance.

San Antonio FC –

@Austin Bold 10.04.2020 at 5:00 PM; a Sunday mantinee for SAFC and will know what there fate will be by the time the take the pitch at COTA. This will be a tough match as SAFC will be on the road versus a team fighting for it’s playoff life for the second week in a row.

Tampa Bay Rowdies –

vs Charleston Battery 10.03.2020 at 6:30 PM; a one versus two match up in Group H but all has been settled as both clubs are locked in their spots for the playoffs. Charleston may want to play spoiler for the Rowdies’ hopes of the top spot.

Phoenix Rising FC –

vs LA Galaxy II 10.03.2020 at 9:30 PM; Rising is one point behind but will need at least a couple of draws and a loss from the top three and get all three points from Los Dos

Louisville City FC –

vs Sporting KC II 10.03.2020 at 6:30 PM; Louisville City is a class unto itself in the USL in their short history, made the Conference Finals in year one and year two in 2015 and 2016, the USL Cup in 2017 and 2018 and made it to the final and lost to Real Monarchs in 2019. Also one point from the top spot but with all the experience they have, they probably aren’t too so concerned where they finish. They want the Cup for the third time in four years.

Hartford Athletic –

@ New York Red Bull II 10.04.2020 at 6:00 PM; heading to New Jersey with a whole lot on the line, they are playoff bound but are still not only fighting for a top spot overall in the USL but is still battling with Pittsburgh for the top spot in Group F. Whoever finishes second in Group F have a date with Louisville City FC. Hartford is clearly the most improved team in the USL Championship from 2019.

Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC –

vs Philadelphia Union II 10.03.2020 at 6:00 PM; two points behind but would need a win a lot of help but not totally impossible to finish on top of the USL Championship, trying to avoid Louisville in the first round of the playoffs on the road.
