The Royals announced their 2016 schedule, and as rumored, they begin the season for the first time with interleague play, opening up at home against the New York Mets for a two-game series. The team will return the favor, traveling to CitiField in New York in June. Other interleague road trips will include visits to Philadelphia and Miami, as well as their traditional home-and-home series with the Cardinals. The Royals will host the Cardinals June 27-28, while traveling across the state on June 29-30. The Royals will also host the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves in interleague play.

The Royals have 13 of 16 games at home around the All-Star break. Their longest road trip takes place in early June, a ten-game trip that takes them to Cleveland, Baltimore, and Chicago. They follow that up with 12 of 14 games at home. The Royals end the season with 24 of their last 28 games against Central Division foes, ending the season with a six game homestand against the Twins and Indians.

Here is the complete schedule with game times yet to be determined.
