Cap City Athletic vs Corktown Hawks 

Start Time: 7:00pm EST 

Venue: East Lansing Soccer Complex (East Lansing, Michigan) 

Corktown Hawks head on the road looking for their third win in three games to open the season. One point behind Nationals FC at the top of the division, Corktown Hawks have yet to concede a goal so far this year. Cap City Athletic will view this as a chance to score a statement, bounce-back win after falling to Michigan Jaguars last week. 

Michigan Jaguars vs Muskegon Risers 

Start Time: 7:00pm EST 

Venue: Walled Lake Central (Commerce, Michigan)

Fresh off their first win at the UWS level, Michigan Jaguars have a chance to keep the momentum flowing in a positive direction as they play host to Muskegon Risers. The visitors will be hoping to build a platform for themselves after three difficult results to begin the 2022 season. 

Sunday, June 5

Cap City Athletic vs Michigan Jaguars 

Start Time: 1:00pm EST 

Venue: East Lansing Soccer Complex (East Lansing, Michigan) 

It’s a busy weekend for both these clubs as they collide Sunday for the second time in two weeks. Michigan Jaguars emerged from the last contest as 3-2 winners following a thrilling comeback, but Cap City will have its home fans to lean on this time around as it looks for payback. 

Corktown Hawks vs Nationals FC 

Start Time: 7:00pm EST 

Venue: Wisner Stadium (Pontiac, Michigan) 

This battle of early season success stories could have major implications on how the Great Lakes Division shakes out. Both clubs enter this weekend without a loss on their ledger, with Nationals FC holding a one-point advantage on Corktown Hawks while having played an additional game. This contest should feature plenty of quality, intense soccer. 

Heartland Division

Gretna Elite vs Sporting Nebraska 

Start Time: 7:00pm CST

Venue: Caniglia Field (Omaha, Nebraska) 

Coming off a 6-0 dismantling of Side FC 92 last Sunday, the confidence will be flowing for Gretna Elite heading into a home game against Sporting Nebraska.

Sunday, June 5 

Arkansas Comets vs Side FC 92 

Start Time: 2:00pm CST

Start Time: 3:00pm CST 

Venue: Stryker Sports Complex (Wichita, Kansas) 

In what should be one of the best games across the country this weekend, FC Wichita hosts Gretna Elite for a top of the table battle.

Indiana Union vs St. Louis Scott Gallagher 

Start Time: 7:00pm EST 

Venue: Trinity Sports Park (Noblesville, Indiana) 

Two sides with middling results so far this season meet to get things underway in the Midwest Division on Friday. Both Indiana Union and St. Louis SG have split their first two contests of the season.
