May 11, 2019 is the official start of regular season play in the Mid-Atlantic Conference. Virginia Beach City FC will play four home matches in 2019 with other friendlies to be announced at a later date.
"We are excited about the upcoming year and the release of the schedule said Virginia Beach City FC head coach Brian Hinkey. "All of our opponents in the league will be good tests for our team. Every point will matter as it essentially comes down to a home and away with each opponent.
After the regular season, the top three teams in the Mid-Atlantic Conference will advance to the postseason, with the second and third-seeds playing each other in the first round. The winner plays the top seed, with the Mid-Atlantic winner moving on to the regional semifinals on July 18.
"We look forward to starting with FC Baltimore Christos. If we can come away with three points away in our first league match of the season against a good squad, it will be a great start and could provide us a lot of momentum moving into the two home matches that follow," Hinkey said. " If we can start well, we give ourselves a great chance in the remainder of the season to win the league.
The 2019 season is Virginia Beach City FC's fifth season, while conference opponents Charlottesville United, FC Baltimore, FC Frederick, and Northern Virginia United are all entering their second seasons.
