TAMPA/INDIANAPOLIS (Thursday, July 2, 2020) – The USL Championship announced today the opening weekend of games that will kick off the league’s resumption of the 2020 season – a nine-game slate that includes Indy Eleven’s return to Lucas Oil Stadium next Saturday, July 11, against Saint Louis FC, presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers.
The first of four 2020 regular season meetings between the Group E foes is set for a 7:00 p.m. ET kickoff that can be seen live on ESPN+.
Indy Eleven has coordinated with Lucas Oil Stadium, the Capital Improvement Board (CIB), and numerous public health organizations to create a comprehensive Health and Safety Plan that will allow a limited number of fans to enjoy games in a safe and responsible fashion next Saturday and throughout the 2020 season. Fans can visit indyeleven.com/safety-plan for details of the plan.
“Every member of the Indy Eleven organization is excited to get back to action and working tirelessly to ensure games at Lucas Oil Stadium starting next weekend go above and beyond when it comes to providing a safe environment,” said Indy Eleven Chief Executive Officer Greg Stremlaw. “Indianapolis is world-renowned for our ability to host sporting events, and we look forward to helping our city establish the benchmark for how to host games safely and responsibly in home markets during these challenging times.”
As Indy Eleven continues to prepare for the restart of its now 16-game regular season, the club will announce additional details regarding scheduling, ticketing, broadcasts and more – all with strict alignment with all local and state public health guidelines in mind – as they are finalized in the coming days.
Five of the USL Championship’s opening nine games between July 11-13 will be aired live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, with the remaining games available on ESPN+. The complete schedule for the remainder of the 2020 USL Championship season will be released soon.
