KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Royals announced their 2017 regular season schedule on Wednesday.  

Opening Day is scheduled for April 3 when the Kansas City Royals visit Minnesota to open the season on the road for the first time since 2014. 

The home opener at Kauffman Stadium will be on April 10 against Oakland.

Kansas City will play 20 interleague contests over eight series with four home and four on the road with the majority of play against the National League West. 

The Royals will compete against their I-70 rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals, in back-to-back two-game series spanning both cities.  

The Cardinals visit Kauffman Stadium from August 7-8 and then the Royals will spend August 9-10 at Busch Stadium.  

Kansas City will host interleague matchups against San Francisco, April 18-19, Colorado, Aug. 22-24, and then close the regular season against Arizona, Set. 29-Oct. 1, marking the first time a non-division opponent closed the campaign since 2010.  

The road interleague schedule will take the Royals to San Diego, June 9-11, San Francisco, June 13-14, and Los Angeles, July 7-9, marking their second trip to San Francisco in franchise history, also in 2005, and their first trip to Dodger Stadium since 2003.

Kansas City’s holiday schedule sees the Royals at home on Easter Sunday against Anaheim on April 16, Mother’s Day against Baltimore on May 14, and Memorial Day against Detroit on May 29.  

They will travel to Anaheim on Father’s Day, June 18, Seattle on Independence Day, July 4, and Detroit on Labor Day, Sept. 4.
