has released its 2015-16 season schedule of matches as Futbol Rapido once again takes over Washington this winter. The season features 35 intense indoor matches played by 7 clubs from November 21st through February 13th. Each WISL club will play 10 matches, 5 home and 5 away. Each week one WISL club will have a bye (off week) due to the odd number of clubs in the competition.

On Saturday February 20th the #1 seed in the final regular season standings will host the #4 seed, and #2 will host #3. The semifinal winners will advance to the WISL Final on Saturday February 27th at the home of the highest remaining seed.

The season kicks off on Saturday November 21 as Sporting Everett, Olympic Force and Bellingham United host home matches. Vancouver Victory host their home opener on December 5th, as do the defending WISL Champion Tacoma Stars Reserves. The Snohomish Skyhawks host their home opener on December 12.
