The 2020 USL League Two season has officially kicked off with the announcement of the schedule on Friday January 24. The league schedule for the Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC consists of 14 matches, seven home and seven away. With the additions of five new teams, and the reshuffle of a 2019 opponent, a balanced schedule now exists for the Great Lakes Division. For the second time in seven seasons, CDLFC will travel away for the season opener.
New members of the Central Conference's Great Lakes Division are: Oakland County FC (Michigan), Louisville City U23 (Kentucky), AFC Ann Arbor (Michigan), Grand Rapids FC (Michigan), and South Bend Lions (Indiana). A member for just the 2019 season, Chicago FC United (Illinois) has moved back to the Central Conference's Heartland Division. The three new Michigan teams have moved over to the USL League Two from a different league while Louisville City U23 and the South Bend Lions are brand-new sides.
The 2020 home schedule for CDLFC consists of five Friday matches with a consistent 7:00pm kickoff, one Saturday match and one Sunday match with 3:00pm kickoffs. For away matches, CDLFC will travel once on a Monday, twice on a Tuesday, once on a Wednesday, twice on a Friday, and once on a Saturday. The schedule includes a four-match away swing from May 27 through June 9 and a three match home-stand from June 19 to June 26.
The postseason schedule for USL League Two begins on Friday and Saturday July 17/18 for the Conference Semifinals and Finals. The National Semifinals will take place on July 24 and 25. To conclude the 2020 USL League Two season, the USL League Two Final will take place on Saturday August 1.
