  • Real Salt Lake owners Ryan Smith and David Blitzer announced the team's return last March.

What to watch: It's also a comeback for World Cup champion and former Utah Royals captain Amy Rodriguez, who will lead the team as head coach.

  • The game begins at 5:30pm at America First Field in Sandy.

Admission: Tickets are available online.
