Houston Dash announce 2017 regular season schedule

The National Women’s Soccer League announced the 2017 regular season schedule today, including the Houston Dash’s slate. The league schedule grows by four games this year, from 20 games to 24.

The Dash open the 2017 regular season against the Chicago Red Stars at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 15 at BBVA Compass Stadium. Kickoff time for this game was originally slated for 2 p.m., but was moved up an hour as the full league schedule was finalized. This is the only home game in April due to three-game road trip from April 22 to May 6. 

The 12-game BBVA Compass Stadium schedule includes a game against each of the teams in the NWSL and two games against Christen Press, Julie Johnson and the Red Stars; Diane Matheson, Jessica Fishlock and Seattle Reign FC; and Rose Lavelle, Allysha Chapman and the Boston Breakers. 

The 2017 home schedule includes eight Saturday games, three Sunday games and one Wednesday game. The Dash will host the 2016 NWSL Champions North Carolina Courage, formerly the Western New York Flash, on Aug. 27. The regular season concludes on the road with a trip to the Midwest for a match against FC Kansas City on Sept. 29.

Broadcast information for all Dash games will be announced at a later date.

The Dash, entering their fourth season, selected USWNT goalkeeper Jane Campbell, Canadian forward Nichelle Prince and defender Erin Smith in the 2017 NWSL College Draft. Other offseason acquisitions include South African defender Janine Van Wyk, Brazilian defender Bruna Benites and University of Florida product Claire Falknor.

Kealia Ohai, who scored a club-record 11 goals in 2016, returns to Houston for her fourth season and joins Canadian forward Janine Beckie and England forward Rachel Daly in one of the most dynamic front lines in the league. Fans can watch Ohai, USWNT midfielder Morgan Brian and Brazilian midfielder Andressa at BBVA Compass this season with a Dash Season Membership, beginning at $174. Additionally, tickets for the home opener on April 15 are now available here or by calling (713) 276-GOAL.
