USL Pro conferences have been set in stone, and there are very few surprises there.

Real Monarchs SLC (the club's full name, given they need to have the city in the name) are joined in the Western Conference by the following:

This leaves the Eastern Conference with fewer affiliated clubs.

  • Charlotte Independence
  • Charleston Battery
  • FC Montreal
  • Harrisburg City Islanders
  • Louisville City
  • New York Red Bulls affiliate club
  • Pittsburgh Riverhounds
  • Richmond Kickers
  • Rochester Rhinos
  • Saint Louis FC
  • Toronto FC affiliate club
  • Wilmington Hammerheads

Rumors have pegged the league at 28 matches, with 14 home and 14 away games. According to Reckless Challenge, each team will play their conference opponent twice, then three more home-and-away series with a physically proximate club.

Playoffs will start in October and the season will start in March. Sounds a lot like MLS to me.
