The 34-match regular season begins March 11 with 17 home matches scheduled for ONEOK Field.
The full schedule won't be released until January.
FC Tulsa has made back-to-back USL Championship Playoffs and will need to finish in the top-seven of the conference standings to make it back for a third-straight time.
The top overall seed will get a bye in the first round of the playoffs, and the teams will be reseeded after the first round.
