When FC Tucson faces the Richmond Kickers at Kino North Stadium on Saturday night, it will end a run of 27 days between home matches. That’s the second longest time between home matches during a season in the club’s history. Let’s take a closer look at these long spells on the road.
* In its history, FC Tucson has dealt with 14 stretches where the team was gone 10 or more days between home matches and five where it had to be away for 20 or more days.
* The longest stretch occured last year when the Men In Black had to go 51 days between stepping out onto the Kino North Stadium pitch for a match.
* This year’s time away passes another 2019 drought (22 days) for second place on the all-time list.
* The good news is that the Men In Black play pretty well when they return from being road warriors. In 13 home games following those long away stretches, they have picked up 9 wins and 3 draws to just 1 loss. In those games, FC Tucson has outscored opponents 43-13.
