Real Salt Lake doesn't know which team it will play March 17 for its MLS opener, but, depending on the CONCACAF Champions League schedule, the season opener will come nearly a month later than the past season's first match.
RSL and Columbus opened 2011 with a CCL game played Feb. 22. Real followed with two more matches by March 15.
It had been speculated that the extra games contributed to RSL's injury problems as well as to season-long inconsistencies.
