Chicago, New England, Real Salt Lake, New York City FC, Sporting Kansas City and Atlanta United open their respective home slates in Week 2.

Expansion side FC Cincinnati has its first home game at Nippert Stadium on March 17 against the Portland Timbers, while Minnesota United has to wait until April 13 for the opening of Allianz Field.
