It’s hard to believe only six months ago the Dell Loy Hansen and co. made an announcement that an NWSL team would be joining the RSL organization. After months of preparation, bit by bit relieved, player signings, two away ties, we now get to welcome our new team to their home. A sellout crowd at Rio Tinto will be there to watch Utah Royals FC as they take on Chicago Red Stars. The Red Stars have one tie and one loss so far this season so both teams are looking for that first win.

NWSL has a deal with cable channel Lifetime to nationally broadcast one match per week, and this week the Royals will be in that spotlight. If you can’t be at the RioT in person, you’ll need a Lifetime subscription in order to watch.
