A busy schedule just got a little busier for the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
The Rowdies will have to jam in a mid-week game when they travel to play the Pittsburgh Riverhounds Wednesday for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open. Three days later, they travel to play against Indianapolis.
If Tampa Bay could get past Pittsburgh – which beat West Virginia 3-0, costing the Rowdies a chance at hosting the game, they would be at home against D.C. United in the next round. Rowdies coach Thomas Rongen coached D.C. United to the MSL Cup in 1999.
The Rowdies are tied with Minnesota for second place in the league standings, trailing the New York Cosmos by six points.
The Rowdies return home to Al Lang Stadium for games against FC Edmonton on June 6 and the Atlanta Silverbacks on June 13.
