[NASL: 2013 Schedule] The North American Soccer League will kick off its third season April 6 with three games. Seven teams will take part in the spring championship. It will be the first year since the league adopted a split-season schedule. The expansion New York Cosmos and Puerto Rico Islanders are slated to take part in the fall season that begins Aug. 3.

The 2012 champion Tampa Bay Rowdies and runner-up Minnesota Stars will open at home against the Carolina RailHawks and San Antonio Scorpions, respectively, in a rematch of last season's closely contested semifinals.

The seven teams will play each other once at home and once on the road for 14 games in the spring championship that will end July 4.  The leader at the summer break will qualify for the 2013 Soccer Bowl as the host team.

The Soccer Bowl will be held the weekend of Nov. 16-17 between the spring and fall champions.
 
The one-month summer break will allow NASL teams to schedule exhibition games and restock their rosters during the international transfer window.
