Legacy 76, Williamsburg’s amateur soccer club that competes in the National Premier Soccer League, has announced its full 2016 season schedule.

The team’s schedule features five home games to be played at Wanner Stadium in addition to five road games across Virginia and Maryland.

The schedule is front-loaded with home games, with four of Legacy’s first five games being played at Wanner.

The first game of the season is scheduled for 7 p.m. May 14 against Chesterfield United FC, which finished second in the NPSL’s Mid Atlantic Conference last season.

Coached by Kevin Darcy, who also coaches Walsingham Academy’s girls soccer team, Legacy 76 is coming off a disappointing 1-7-2 season in 2015, finishing second-to-last in the Mid Atlantic Conference just one point ahead of ASA Charge.

Legacy 76 is currently offering season tickets for the upcoming season. The season ticket package costs $25 for five home games and includes a Virginia Legacy 76 team scarf.

Single-game tickets are available for purchase on game days.  The ticket costs are $5 for adults and $2 for kids ages 5 through 17. Children ages 4 and under will get into games free.
