The National Women’s Soccer League announced Wednesday its schedule for the 2022 regular season.

The league’s 10th anniversary season includes 12 teams set to compete in a single table, 22-match regular season with 11 home games and 11 away games per club.

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.

Each of the league’s clubs will compete in opening weekend. NWSL newcomer Angel City FC kicks off on Friday, April 29, hosting historic league powerhouse North Carolina Courage in a primetime contest at Banc of California Stadium.

Saturday’s opening weekend matchups include a Midwest row between last year’s championship runner-up Chicago Red Stars and Racing Louisville FC. On the west coast, former Thorn Adrianna Franch returns to the Rose City when she and the Kansas City Current take on Portland Thorns FC at Providence Park.

The defending league champion Washington Spirit host OL Reign at Audi Field that Sunday, while fellow newcomer San Diego Wave FC begins its first regular-season campaign with a road match against the Houston Dash at PNC Stadium. Rounding out the weekend, former Orlando Pride standouts Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger make their way back to Exploria Stadium to face their old club as the Pride host NJ/NY Gotham FC.

Week Two of the regular season will see a 2021 NWSL Championship rematch between the Spirit and Red Stars when Chicago hosts Washington May 7 at SeatGeek Stadium.

This season’s competition between regional foes continues May 13 as Portland plays host to OL Reign in another edition of the Cascadia battle at Providence Park, while Angel City and San Diego build on their new rivalry with a contest at the Banc on Saturday, July 9.

The regular season will conclude Sunday, October 2. Six teams will qualify for the NWSL playoffs, with the top two seeds receiving a first-round bye. The 2022 campaign will end with the NWSL Championship on October 29. Ally, the NWSL’s official banking partner, will once again dedicate its Player Impact Fund to financing the league’s playoff bonus pool. The Ally Player Impact Fund was established in 2021 to support the growth of the league and financial success of the NWSL players.

The 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.
