Huntsville, Ala. – Huntsville City Football Club announced today the schedule for its inaugural MLS NEXT Pro season. Scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. CT on Sunday, March 26 at Charlotte FC’s MLS NEXT Pro affiliate Crown Legacy FC, Huntsville City FC will start the season with seven consecutive road matches and a bye week before the grand opening of Joe Davis Stadium at 7 p.m. CT on May 19, also against Crown Legacy FC.
