Rangers Mid-South 2024 Schedule Release

By Little Rock Rangers Communications Staff, 02/15/24, 12:00PM CST


Little Rock, Arkansas - A lot has changed in Little Rock since this time last year for the Stags. Before the 2023 season, the Rangers welcomed a new coach and staff. This brought in a new identity and new players. Even more, has changed after a successful 2023 season in which the Rangers finished as Southern Conference Finalists. Former head coach Adriano Versari took over as Director of MLS Next Club, GFI Academy in Texas. This opening allowed for long-time club captain, Nick Doyle to fill the role. Keeping the majority of the backroom staff such as Francesco Brunetti and Dylan Perdue, the Rangers look primed for another great season.

The Rangers will face a total of 5 total opponents in the 2024 regular season, including friendlies. With both Texas United and Louisiana Parish no longer around, that only leaves Little Rock, Mississippi Brilla, Louisiana Krewe, Blue Goose, and Mid-South newcomer Hattiesburg Futbol Club. 

Friendlies to begin the season: 

  • Saturday, May 4th against Reign FK
  • Theme: Star Wars Night
  • War Memorial Stadium @ 7 PM


  • Wednesday, May 8th Intersquad Match
  • Theme: Meet the Rangers Night
  • War Memorial Stadium @ 6 PM

Welcoming The New Kids to Little Rock - May 11, 2024
The Stags will open Mid-South play at home against USL newcomers, Hattiesburg Futbol Club on May 11th. With the Rangers coming off only one home loss in 2023, the Stags will look to start the season flying against the new kids. Academy Teams will be highlighted throughout the night as we kick off the 2024 campaign. Kickoff is at 7 PM.

Road Warriors - May 18 & May 25
After the season opener against Hattiesburg, the Rangers travel back-to-back weekends to Louisiana Krewe and Mississippi Brilla for two tough away days. The Rangers went unbeaten at both places last season but split the season series with Krewe who beat the Rangers in Little Rock to finish the 2023 Regular Season. Both kickoffs will be at 7 PM.

June Home Stretch - June 1, June 5, & June 8
After two road matches, the Rangers return back to War Memorial Stadium for three straight home matches. With Brilla, Blue Goose, and Hattiesburg all coming to town. Just a week on from the away trip to Brilla, we welcome the side to Little Rock for the first-ever Rangers Alumni Night, in which the club will honor past and present Ranger greats. Just a few days later, Blue Goose comes to town. In 2023, the Stags scored a total of 17 goals when playing at home to the Shreveport side. The club will be hosting a college night as we welcome multiple college programs and recognize the colleges of our players. On June 8th, Hattiesburg makes the trip to the Natural State for the second time in 2024. This time coming in with a few games experience and plenty of excitement. The club will honor the sport of soccer with Y’all Means All Night, as we recognize that the beautiful game is meant for everyone. All three will kick off at 7 PM.

Away Days in June - June 15, June 19, June 29
You can’t have three home matches without a return on the away end. The Stags go three straight on away days but to only two locations, both in Louisiana. For the second time, the Stags will travel to Lafayette to face Krewe on the 15th of June. The away trip is followed by two straight trips to Shreveport to face Blue Goose, however, it is separated by 10 days. All kickoffs will be at 7 PM.

Final Home Matches - July 6 & July 10
