We just got the 2020 season scheduled a few days ago, but the 2021 schedule is also now upon us. The Reds have released the schedule for next season, and it’s got 162 games on it!

The season will begin on April 1st, a Thursday, with Cincinnati hosting St. Louis for opening day. The three game series will skip over Friday, as usual, before being completed over the weekend. Cincinnati will then host the Pittsburgh Pirates for three games before an off day on the 8th to head out west to take on both Arizona and San Francisco.

The season  will end on October 3rd. The final stretch of the season will conclude with a 10-game home stand that sees the Reds host the Dodgers, Pirates, and Nationals before hitting the road for a 2-game series against the White Sox and a final 3-game series to begin October against Pittsburgh.

The All-Star break will be from July 12th through the 15th. The World Series parade will be at the end of October, with a celebration being held somewhere in the vicinity of Great American Ballpark (see what I did there?).

Here’s the full schedule from the Reds.

    bold (and hopefully true) move predicting back to back world series wins before the 1st game is played in the 1st year.

      And without a 1990 wire to wire reference…

        I take issue with the wire to wire thing. Yes, the Reds were in 1st place the whole time in the regular season, but they definitely weren’t in the playoffs – losing game one of the NLCS to the Pirates. Does that make me a psycho? Yes.

        Very good point. That’s is an overlooked detail.

    Pretty favorable schedule. Get most of west coast done in April where its warmer and when you’re healthier. Only go into Mountain for 4 games (COL) and Pacific for 4 games (SD) outside of April.

    Typical weird scheduling quirks I noticed: Middle of June, why play 3 at Milwaukee fly out to San Diego for 4 only to come back to Minnesota for 2? Last week of season off day, two games against the sox, then another off day?

    Ok Doug. Big question, when do tickets go on sale for 2021? As fans, i believe it will be the biggest fight of our lives to get back into the stadium to watch these world champion reds IN PERSON!

      That one is far above my pay grade.
