Things we know about the 2013 schedule: 1. The MLS season starts on March 2 or so. Looks like it will be 34 league games again. 2. Our opponents, if I understand the rotation correctly: Home against the West: Chivas USA, San Jose, Seattle, Vancouver, Colorado Away against the West: Portland, LA Galaxy, FC Dallas, RSL The East schedule should once again be playing every one home-and-away plus 7 of the teams one extra game. I don't know if we'll pick up extra games against Columbus and New England this year since we only played them twice last year or not. If it was a straight flip it would look like this: Home: Chicago (2), New York (2), Kansas City (2), DC United (1), New England (1), Montreal (1), Philadelphia (1), Columbus (1), Toronto (1) Away: DC United (2), Montreal (2), Philadelphia (2), Toronto (2), Chicago (1), Columbus (1), New York (1), New England (1), Kansas City (1) 3. Dates. Looking at the Astros schedule and the FIFA dates we have these Saturdays open. The league says they will schedule lightly during the Gold Cup but they can't take the whole month off. Obviously last year we did play the same day as the Astros a couple of times so this isn't ironclad but it give you a good idea. March 2, 9, 16, 30 April 13, 27 May 18 June 1, 22 July 6, 13, 27 August 3, 17 September 21 October 5, 19, 26 That's 18 Saturdays. Expect a heavy home schedule early in the season. Hopefully the schedule will be out soon. Last year it was announced on January 5.
