The NASL released its 2016 season schedule today, sticking with the spring/fall split-season format of previous years. You can see the entire schedule here.

The Cosmos will start their campaign at home on Sunday, April 3rd, hosting the Ottawa Fury in a rematch of the league final. Cosmos fans are already excited at the prospect of what has typically been a physical encounter between the two sides, but the Fury will be a much different team this time around with a major exodus of the talent and coach that took them to the title game in 2015.

The biggest changes were, of course, the inclusion of Miami FC and Rayo OKC for the spring season and Puerto Rico FC for the fall. Also noticeable were the disappearances of the Atlanta Silverbacks and San Antonio Scorpions after recent announcements of them not operating this year.

Below is a listing of the Cosmos schedule in a convenient format. Note this does not include friendlies like the California preseason tour or US Open Cup dates.
