The National Lacrosse League has announced the schedule for the 2014 NLL regular season. As the 28th season of professional indoor lacrosse, the new 81-game schedule has expanded from 16 to 18 games per team this year and will open on Saturday, Dec. 28 with three Face Off 2014 games.

The back-to-back NLL champion Rochester Knighthawks will open the year and begin their title defense by hosting the Minnesota Swarm at The Blue Cross Arena in a Division Final rematch. Meanwhile, the league's oldest rivalry enters its 23rd year when the Buffalo Bandits host the Philadelphia Wings at First Niagara Center. Later that night, West Division action gets into gear when the Colorado Mammoth take on the visiting Edmonton Rush with fans getting their first glimpse of the new videoboard at Pepsi Center. Three more teams begin their season the following weekend as the Toronto Rock host the Calgary Roughnecks at Air Canada Centre in a matchup of 2013 regular season division champions while the Vancouver Stealth open their schedule against the Mammoth on the road.

The Roughnecks play their home opener at Scotiabank Saddledome in Week 3 on Friday, Jan. 10 before the Rush and Stealth open at home on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Rexall Place and Langley Events Centre respectively. The Wings host their first game at Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, Jan. 12 while the Swarm play their home opener at Xcel Energy Center in Week 4 on Sunday, Jan. 19.

Each team will play an 18-game schedule over the course of 18 weeks before the start of the playoffs, with regular season play concluding with four games on Saturday, Apr. 26, including a matchup between East Division rivals in the Bandits and Knighthawks along with a rematch of the West Division Final as the Roughnecks take on the Stealth. Week 16 features a rematch of the 2013 NLL Championship Game when the Knighthawks host the Stealth on Saturday, Apr. 12.
