Highmark Stadium – 3PM

Tickets: $5 (U.S. currency) at the door gets you in. Another $10 gets you in amongst the more posh of supporters

Watch: The YouTubes

On the ‘watching’ note, the days of live on the The YouTubes is at an end. Live streaming of matches will now be on ESPN+ for $5 a month. Anyone who though the league was dumping money into broadcast quality so they could keep giving it away for free were sadly mistaken. This does not change the agreement with Pittsburgh CW. Those matches scheduled for local television will still be there.
