LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The USL schedule is finally out for the 2016 season and Louisville City FC will kick off its second season March 26 against the Charlotte Independence. 

Louisville gets started in March but will open play at Louisville Slugger Field on April 2 against New York Red Bulls. 

Once again, Louisville managed to nab the July 4 date at Slugger Field against Montreal FC -- the date in 2015 provided a big turnout for a win over the Richmond Kickers before fireworks over the river. The Independence Day date is also in the middle of a four game home stand.

Louisville's inaugural season rivalry with St. Louis FC drops from last season's four matchups to just two this season, likely aided by Saint Louis' move to the Western Conference. But the addition of Cincinnati FC to the Eastern Conference, Louisville will likely forge a new rivalry in three matchups over the course of the season.
