The second Major League Soccer campaign for the Union begins in March, but the club won't have to wait a month to play its first home game, like it did last season.

Starting its second season in a row on the road, the Union opens on Saturday, March 19, at 8:30 p.m., against the Houston Dynamo at Robertson Stadium.

The home opener will be 1 week later, March 26, against the expansion Vancouver Whitecaps at PPL Park.

MLS' First Kick begins March 15 when Seattle Sounders FC hosts the Los Angeles Galaxy live on ESPN at 9:30 p.m. MLS will feature a balanced 34-game schedule, with teams facing each other at home and on the road.

Group and individual tickets for the Union's home opener go on sale in January. Tickets for the entire season will be available by early February. *
