After a seven-month delay, the OL Reign will play a home match.
The Reign will host the Portland Thorns FC in a Cascadia derby on Saturday at Cheney Stadium. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans will not be permitted to attend. The match will air online via Twitch.
“It will be nice to finally have a match at home this year,” Reign coach Farid Benstiti said. “I wish we would be able to have the fans join us, as I know the players and I are thankful for their support. Even though we can’t play in front of them, we want to go out there and have a successful match and play our style.”
The National Women’s Soccer League postponed its season in March because of the pandemic. The Reign would’ve had their season opener in April.
