The 2019 FC Buffalo NPSL regular season schedule is out, accounting for five of the six matches included in the season ticket holders’ package.

The sixth game will be announced in the coming weeks, a new wrinkle for longtime fans of FCB’s league.

FCB opens its 2019 slate on May 19, almost a full week after returning from our 10th Anniversary trip to Germany.

That’s when the Wolves visit long-term rivals Rochester Lancers at Aquinas Institute in Monroe County.

That’s it for the league slate until the final day of May, when FCB hosts Syracuse FC at All-High Stadium on May 31.

It’s part of a pivotal three-match home run featuring the Erie County Derby on June 7 and our first look at Pittsburgh Hotspurs (June 14).

We return to the road on June 23 to complete our season series with Pittsburgh, then visiting Syracuse FC for a midweek match on June 26.

A tough run-in begins with Cleveland SC’s first appearance on the schedule, a home test on June 29.

The away EC Derby comes one day after Independence Day, while Rochester visits for Fan Appreciation Day on July 7.

Finally, the club closes out its regular season with a potential playoff-altering visit to Cleveland SC on July 13.
