Louisville City FC’s 2020 season restart will coincide with a long-awaited event: the opening of Lynn Family Stadium.
The USL Championship announced Tuesday that next on LouCity’s agenda is a July 12 home matchup against Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, with the 5 p.m. Sunday kickoff to air on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App.
“The time has arrived, and we are ecstatic to finally open Lynn Family Stadium,” said LouCity president Brad Estes. “So much time, effort and support has gone into making this idea of professional soccer a reality in Louisville, and we look forward to celebrating our city on July 12.”
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear previously approved LouCity games to operate at up to 50% capacity under a plan by Lynn Family Stadium operator ASM Global. The “VenueShield” program requires temperature checks, face coverings and physical distancing with complete information at LouCity.com/VenueShield.
Under normal circumstances, Lynn Family Stadium could accommodate as many as 15,304. Most if not all spectators at LouCity-Pittsburgh will be season ticket holders, and any individual game tickets available would be announced later.
