In front of a sellout crowd of 8,082 at Steinbrenner Field on May 8, the Rowdies, down a man, equalized in the 85th minute in the their home debut. Eleven days later, Gordon Kljestan's late goal in the 88th minute secured a 3-3 draw.

Upcoming schedule: The Rowdies' home match at Steinbrenner Field against Vancouver has been moved from Saturday, Aug. 21 to Thursday, Aug. 19 due to schedule conflicts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' preseason. That match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. The start time for the home game with St. Louis on Aug. 29 has been pushed back from 4 to 6 p.m.
