Sacramento Republic F.C. has announced that Saturday evening's home opener against the Harrisburg City Islanders is officially sold out. Hughes Stadium's soccer capacity is 20,231 and it's a record for a regular season game trumping the old record of 10.697 that was set on August 11, 2013. The all-time USL Pro attendance record is owned by Orlando City S.C. who had an announced attendance of 20,866 for the 2013 USL Pro Championship game (Orlando City S.C. vs Charlotte Eagles) held inside the Citrus Bowl (cap. 65, 438).
Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 P.M. and the gates to Hughes Stadium will open at 5:30 P.M. No tickets will be sold on-site and parking on the campus of Sacramento City College will be $10 along with overflow parking on Sutterville Rd. and in the Curtis Park Village. Light Rail is strongly encouraged due to limited space and 1,000 free passes will be given to ticket holders. Please remember that there will be no tailgating in the campus or parking lot but there will be live music, activities for the family, food vendors and alcohol.
Sacramento's next home game will be held on May 3rd against the Orange County Blues F.C. and May 17th against the L.A. Galaxy II.
