NATIONAL LACROSSE LEAGUE ANNOUNCES FULL 2021-22 SCHEDULE

FireWolves Inaugural Season Opens Up on the Road on Saturday, December 4, and at Home at the Times Union Center on Saturday, December 18

ALBANY, NEW YORK – The National Lacrosse League (@NLL), the largest and most successful professional lacrosse property in the world, today revealed its full 2021-22 game schedule, beginning with Face Off Weekend, December 3-4.  Early highlights of the slate include the Albany FireWolves’ inaugural game on the road against the Toronto Rock on Saturday, December 4, and the league’s return to Albany at the FireWolves’ home-opening game on Saturday, December 18 against the Rochester Knighthawks.

Each team will play nine home and nine away contests during the season.  TSN will broadcast a regular season “Game of the Week” on linear television as well as distribute every regular season game on its digital platforms, the TSN app or TSN.ca.  The FireWolves will be featured on the season opener TSN “Game of the Week” on December 4.  Other broadcast networks and schedules will be announced soon.

“We could not have asked for a better schedule as we launch our inaugural season,” said George Manias, President of the Albany FireWolves.  “The league office and the Times Union Center were able to give us ALL Saturday night home games, which is an ideal gameday for us to maximize our attendance.  In addition, so many of the great UAlbany legends will be making their way back to the Capital Region to face off against us, what a treat for our local fans to see them in action again.  This will be such an exciting season and we encourage fans to get their season home opener tickets for December 18, while great seats are still available.”

Following the FireWolves’ inaugural season opener against the Rock, Albany has a bye week ahead of the team’s first home game.  The FireWolves’ home opener against the Rochester Knighthawks will be the first NLL game played in the Capital Region in nearly two decades.  Other notable matchups for the FireWolves include hosting the Georgia Swarm twice, marking the return to Albany of the legendary Thompson brothers who attended and starred at University at Albany.  The FireWolves will also host the Buffalo Bandits and the Philadelphia Wings, featuring former UAlbany standouts, Connor Fields, and Blaze Riorden, respectively.
