UTICA, NY – The Utica City Football Club will take to the Adirondack Bank Center for a modified regular season that could start as early as December 31st.

The Major Arena Soccer League announced Wednesday it has voted to proceed with eleven teams participating, including Baltimore, Dallas, Florida, Harrisburg, Kansas City, Ontario, Rochester, San Diego, St. Louis, Tacoma and Utica.

However, local and state regulations will determine start dates, capacity and the number of games played.

“It is important for fans of Utica City FC to understand that, due to the aforementioned regulations, we do not anticipate starting quite as soon as other teams that are not located in the Northeast,” said Tommy Tanner, UCFC General Manager. “We are working on a plan that will allow for the allotted 12-24 games, and our ultimate hope is that we will be able to have some capacity of fans for our modified season.”

Participating teams will need to play in a minimum number of games in order to qualify for the playoffs.

The regular season will run through April 18, with a playoff format to be revealed at a later date.

At least five MASL teams will not take part in the upcoming season due to COVID-19 restrictions.
