(So much for taking today off from the site…)
The Battery announced the rest of its preseason schedule today, adding eight more dates to the team calendar.
Five of the team’s matches will be played at Blackbaud Stadium, with a sixth away match being played in Mount Pleasant against the College of Charleston on Thursday. Four of the matches at Blackbaud will be free admission, with only the previously scheduled rematch of the USL PRO championship game against Wilmington charging at the gate.
