Angel City FC to face Bay FC in season opener on March 16

Angel City Football Club’s third season will kick off with the first installment of another in-state rivalry, this time with a new opponent from Northern California.

Angel City, which has a rivalry with San Diego Wave FC, will host Northern California-based Bay FC on March 16 at BMO Stadium, the opening weekend of the 2024 NWSL season.

Bay FC and Utah Royals FC are the two new expansion teams in the 14-team NWSL this season.

With the two new teams joining, the number of regular-season games will increase this season. Each team will play 26 regular-season games (13 home, 13 away).

After the home opener, Angel City will play three consecutive games (Orlando Pride, Kansas City Current and Chicago Red Stars) on the road, before returning home for consecutive home matches (April 21 against North Carolina and April 26 against Kansas City).

Angel City will travel north to face Bay FC on June 22 at PayPal Park in San Jose.

Angel City’s first game against San Diego is May 23 at BMO Stadium. The trip to San Diego and Snapdragon Stadium is scheduled for Aug. 24.

The league has a scheduled break (July 6-Aug. 24) to accommodate the Summer Olympics in Paris. After the break, Angel City will resume the regular season on Sept. 1 at home against Chicago.
