Sky Blue FC’s preseason match against the University of North Carolina on April 6 has been canceled.  

According to Sky Blue, the decision was made because of the absence of UNC players, many of whom are currently with their respective U-23 national teams.

The team will continue preseason play against Rutgers University on Friday, March 29, at Sportika Sports in Manalapan. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

The NWSL side kicks off the 2019 season on the road April 13 against the Washington Spirit at Maryland SoccerPlex. The team returns to Yurcak Field for its home opener on April 20 against the Houston Dash.
