2017-2018 National Lacrosse League Schedule Announced

The NLL will face off December 8, 2017 for opening weekend

The National Lacrosse League (NLL), the largest men’s professional indoor lacrosse league in North America, today announced the 2017-2018 NLL regular season schedule, marking the 32nd year of professional indoor lacrosse. The 81-game season, consisting of 18 games per team, will begin with the start of NLL Face Off Weekend on Friday, Dec. 8 with the New England Black Wolves hosting last year’s champion, the Georgia Swarm, while the Buffalo Bandits host the Toronto Rock in a great East Division rivalry matchup. The Colorado Mammoth will visit the Vancouver Stealth, in a West playoff rematch from last season, in the opening night triple header. To round out Week 1, the Calgary Roughnecks will travel east to take on the Rochester Knighthawks on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

 

“We take great pride in developing the best possible schedule for both our fans and teams, and are thrilled to finally release the official 2017–2018 NLL schedule,” said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. “Coming off of the San Diego announcement I could not be any more excited to get this season underway. With three opening night matchups of Georgia vs New England, Toronto vs Buffalo, and Colorado vs Vancouver on December 8, our fans will experience no shortage in action. Having a full year of NLL TV under our belts, we are especially excited to build on that experience with even more content and coverage this season.”
