Locomotive's Third Campaign Features 32 Games - 16 Home and 16 Away

EL PASO, Texas – March 30, 2021 – El Paso Locomotive FC in conjunction with USL Championship unveiled its full 2021 Regular Season schedule today, presented by Locomotive’s Premier Corporate Partners. Locomotive’s third USL Championship campaign features 32 games – 16 home, 16 away – over the course of 26 weeks beginning with a home opener at Southwest University Park on May 8 against its regional rival New Mexico United. All Locomotive matches will be broadcast live on ESPN+. Times for home and away matches will be announced in the coming weeks.

Locomotive is set to build off two successful first years that culminated in back-to-back Western Conference appearances in the USL Championship. The Locos will be participating in the Mountain Division of the Western Conference, playing four matches – two home, two away – against its 2020 Group C opponents, New Mexico United, Real Monarchs, and Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC as well as Copa Tejas rivals, San Antonio FC, Austin Bold FC, and Rio Grande Valley FC.

The eight remaining Locomotive fixtures will be rounded out with inter-division and inter-conference matchups featuring some familiar faces as El Paso takes on LA Galaxy II, Las Vegas Lights FC, FC Tulsa, OKC Energy FC, Orange County SC, and Sacramento Republic from the Western Conference. For the first time in club history, the Locos Blue will take on teams from the Eastern Conference, playing Sporting Kansas City II on the road in Kansas City on May 30 and hosting Indy Eleven at Southwest University Park on June 9

The Copa Tejas – a supporter-run tournament – makes its triumphant return in 2021, as Locomotive kicks off its run in the round-robin tournament at Southwest University Park on May 22 against RGVFC. The Sun City Club will first play against the reigning Copa Tejas champions Austin Bold FC on June 3 and its San Antonio rival on July 28. The Copa Tejas culminates on October 30, when Locomotive closes out its 2021 Regular Season run against the Toros in Edinburg, Texas.
