[PDL] The PDL will have 65 teams when it kicks off its 2013 season May 4. The league has added four teams: the New York Magic-F.A. Euro, Real Boston Rams, SW Florida Adrenaline and a franchise in Oklahoma City.

Several teams have announced name changes: IMG Academy Bradenton (IMG Bradenton Academics), K-W United FC (Hamilton FC Rage), NJ LUSO Rangers FC (New Jersey Rangers), S.C. United Bantams (Palmetto FC Bantams) and VSI Tampa Bay FC (VSI Tampa Flames).

The season will kick off with three games on the West Coast as LA Misioneros FC faces the Fresno Fuego, the Kitsap Pumas meet Victoria Highlanders FC and the Pali Blues welcome the Ventura County Fusion.
Each team will again play 16 games in 2013.

    I think what you should have also included here is that 12 USL PDL teams will not return this season.

    The USL continues its merry-go-round of franchises.
