Union release 2016 schedule

MLS finally revealed its much delayed schedule Thursday, and the prospects for national exposure are fairly glum for the Union. They have just three national TV dates, two in UniMas Friday night affairs with Orlando City April 8 and D.C. United May 20. They are slated to be on FS1 July 17 vs. New York Red Bulls. They aren’t listed for any ESPN dates. By contrasted, the Union were scheduled for eight national TV dates last year.

Other dates of interest:

- Check the backlog in May that features six games in 22 days. There’s also three straight road trips to Portland, Toronto and Red Bulls in September and October, plus an October bye week that hampers the Union’s hopes of playing catchup late in the season. They also play Red Bulls twice in the last three games.

- This year’s western road trips include Seattle, Union East (Houston), MLS Cup holders Portland, Colorado and FC Dallas in the opener.

- Sporting KC returns to Talen Energy Park for the first time since the U.S. Open Cup final Aug. 27.
