The story-lines for soccer in Western New York this summer are abundant: there’s the reinvention of the Western New York Flash, in search of its third straight championship season despite the suspension of Women’s Professional Soccer; and there’s FC Buffalo, a suddenly-stacked men’s amateur club set to embark on its third season in the NPSL.

Exhibition matches will be included as they’re announced, but here’s the master regular season schedule for soccer in Western New York:

(All Flash games will be held at Sahlen Stadium in Rochester unless marked, and all FC Buffalo matches will be at Robert E. Rich All-High Stadium unless noted otherwise.)

Sunday, May 13: Detroit City FC at FC Buffalo, 7 p.m.
Saturday, May 19: New York Fury at Western New York Flash, 7 p.m.
