Date, time set for LouCity’s home playoff opener

By LouCity Communications, 09/30/20, 10:00AM EDT


The boys in purple will make their postseason push next month.

Louisville City FC will open the USL Championship Playoffs by hosting a 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, game inside Lynn Family Stadium, the club announced Wednesday.

Season ticket members have been notified of opportunities to opt into the playoffs. A limited number of single-game tickets will also be made available to the public at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, at or by calling (502) LOU-CITY.

The boys in purple, who are unbeaten in their last 10 games with five straight victories, have locked up the No. 1 seed from Group E, one of eight regional pods in which the league organized clubs to limit travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. LouCity’s first-round opponent will be determined this weekend as the USL’s regular season concludes.

Group E’s 1 seed hosts Group F’s 2 seed to start the postseason in the round of 16. Pending this week’s results, either Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC (10-4-1, 31 points) or the Hartford Athletic (9-3-2, 29 points) are in line to visit Lynn Family Stadium.

Admission for any future home playoff games will be handled similarly, with season ticket members getting first access before any single-game tickets will be made available to the public. Other postseason rounds include the Eastern Conference semifinals (Oct. 15-18), Eastern Conference Final (Oct. 22-25) and USL Championship Final (Nov. 1).

LouCity has operated at about 30% capacity in its first season at Lynn Family Stadium, which under normal circumstances could accommodate a capacity crowd of 15,304. All fans are required to follow stringent safety protocols, among them wearing masks and physical distancing. For more details, visit

Before the playoffs begin, LouCity hosts Sporting KC II at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. While the No. 1 seed has been clinched, any more points earned improve the club’s chances of hosting playoff games beyond the first round, as home team status is awarded to the side with a better record. 

LouCity-SKC II will air on WBKI/The CW and AM 790 WKRD plus stream through ESPN+ and the WDRB Now app.
