The first opponent will be the defending league champions Union SC. This was actually a request made by Saints management. "We want to beat last years best to get things started off in the right foot. This organization doesn't shy away from anyone."
Gateway United leads the all time series 3-1-2, outscoring 21 to 16 in total points. Last time Gateway United played Union SC was game 15 (2010) in the regular season winning 5 to 1.
The Saints are open to trade options with the BSL expansion clubs that still have available positions. High draft picks are not a requirement. Reasonable offers will be considered.
