Heading into the match, the Riverhounds have secured a playoff berth and the Kickers have locked down home matches throughout the playoffs. The home finale for the Pittsburgh side has implications for their final seeding in the playoffs.

The match is slated for a 7:00 p.m. kick off.

With seven matches remaining in the season throughout the league and the top eight teams receiving their punch ticket into the coveted post-season, only the Kickers (first) and the Orlando City Lions (second) have solidified their position within the playoff race.  

The Riverhounds, along with the Charleston Battery, Harrisburg City Islanders, Charlotte Eagles, and L.A. Blues have secured a playoff berth, with the Dayton Dutch Lions, Wilmington Hammerheads, and VSI Tampa Bay battling for the eighth and final seed.
