New, 5 comments

Real Monarchs fans can now start planning their 2017 schedules.

Real Monarchs tifo

With two months until the season starts, Real Monarchs’ 2017 schedule was released today.

And wouldn’t you just know it, but most of the dates on the schedule overlap with a Real Salt Lake match, which may test the patience of some trying to follow both sides.

Monarchs start the season visiting Portland Timbers in a match against their second-division side; their home opener comes against rebranded Phoenix Rising FC.

Monarchs roster

A handful of Real Monarchs players have been involved with RSL’s preseason preparations, with Daniel Haber, Chandler Hoffman, and Nick Besler earning minutes in RSL’s exhibition against New York Red Bulls today.

Further, it seems Emery Welshman may be in contention for a Real Monarchs contract, joining the club in preseason. He was on the bench for today’s match against New York.
