[USL PRO] USL PRO will feature 11 teams in 2012, one down for the number that finished the 2011 season. FC New York, which played one season in the USL, won't return in 2012. The 132-game regular season is slated to kick off on April 6 when Antigua Barracuda will host the Pittsburgh Riverhounds at Sticky Wicket Stadium.
Antigua's presence in an American league will take on particular significance in 2012 since many of the Barracuda players play for the Antigua & Barbuda national team that will face the USA in World Cup 2014 qualifying.
The 2011 champion Orlando City visits the Charlotte Eagles on April 7.
