Real Salt Lake will have three Sunday home matches in 2015

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

It'll distress some Real Salt Lake fans, but there will be three home Sunday matches in the 2015 MLS regular season.

March 29 against Toronto FC, June 7 against Colorado Rapids, and June 21 against Sporting KC are all home matches played on Sunday. All three are nationally broadcast matches.

RSL also hosts some midweek and Friday matches with which to contend, which shouldn't be too problematic: Friday, May 1 against LA Galaxy; Wednesday, May 6 against LA Galaxy; Friday, July 24 against Sporting KC; and Wednesday, October 14 against Portland.

Real Salt Lake last hosted a match on Sunday in the 2013 playoffs against Portland Timbers; a less-than-full crowd attended — the attendance was recorded at 17,333, but RSL won that one 4-2 in a real thumping match that sent the club to the MLS Cup final.

It's one of those things that's necessary for more nationally televised matches, which probably outweighs any consternation from RSL supporters.
