2016 Sockers FC schedule announced

Sockers FC today announced the schedule for the franchise's eighth season, as the team looks to capture their second consecutive playoff berth in the Premier Development League.
The team will open up their 2016 campaign on the road on May 20 with the first of two games against new division rival, the Albuquerque Sol.
Albuquerque, along with Springfield Synergy FC and the Oklahoma City Pulse will join the Sockers and the Mississippi Brilla in the restructured Mid South Division, within the Southern Conference of the PDL.
Home play will open up for the Sockers on May 26, as they will host Mississippi in a two-game set that weekend.
“Getting off to a good start will be the key to this season with our first four games being against U.S. Open Cup participants,” Sockers FC Assistant General Manager and Director of Soccer Operations Jeff VonHolle said.
Similar to the 2015 season, the Sockers will play 14 regular season games with seven taking place on the team's home pitch at Grande Communications Stadium and seven on the road. All seven home games will take place on either a Thursday or Saturday, including a contest on Saturday, July 2 against Springfield Synergy FC with fireworks following the match.
The playoff format has changed for the 2016 season with the top teams from both the Mid South Division and the seven-team Southeast Division earning a spot in the Southern Conference playoffs. The second place team from the Southeast Division will also qualify for the  Southern Conference playoffs, with the final berth going to the team with the next highest point total between the two divisions.
