The Chicago White Sox have announced the club's tentative 2008 regular-season schedule, with the White Sox opening at the Cleveland Indians (March 31, April 2-3). It is the club's first opening day on the road since 2004. The Sox open their 18th season at U.S. Cellular Field against the Minnesota Twins (April 7, 9 and 10).

The White Sox and Cubs continue their interleague rivalry for the 12th straight season, with the Sox traveling to Wrigley Field (June 20-22) and the Cubs visiting U.S. Cellular Field (June 27-29). Both are three-game weekend series.

The White Sox make their first-ever regular-season trip to San Francisco (May 16-18) and visit the Los Angeles Dodgers for the first time since 2003 (June 24-26). The Sox are scheduled to host Colorado (June 13-15) and Pittsburgh (June 17-19) in interleague play. It marks the first time the Rockies and Sox play in Chicago.

The White Sox face Boston seven times, including a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field (August 8-11). The New York Yankees visit the Sox for a three-game series (April 22-24), and the White Sox play four games in New York in the final season at Yankee Stadium (September 15-18). The final home series of the season is vs. Cleveland (September 26-28).

The longest homestand is 10 games, which occurs on three occasions (June 27-July 6, August 5-14 and September 5-14). The longest road trip is also 10 games (May 9-18, August 25 - September 3 and September 15-25).
