The recently relocated Hamilton City are set to start their first season in town, with their first regular season match set for this Friday. The club, which was until recently a fixture in the Forest city, kicks off their inaugural season in Milton on Friday night.
Hamilton City is a part of the Canadian Soccer League, with eight member teams including Hamilton, all based in and around the Golden Horseshoe. Other teams include Toronto Atomic FC, Milton SC, York Region Shooters, Brantford Galaxy, Scarborough SC, Serbian White Eagles, and FC Ukraine United.
Though Friday’s season opener will be their first game of the season, it will also be a rematch of sorts. The two clubs met for a preseason friendly on Sunday afternoon, with Hamilton coming out on top in a 2-1 final.
In total Hamilton will play twenty-one matches between May and October, playing each team three times, hosting ten home games travelling out of town for eleven away games.
The club will host their first home game one week from Friday when Toronto Atomic FC come to town. The game, as well as all home games, will be played at Cardinal Newman highschool in Stoney Creek.
