Major League Lacrosse today announced the complete regular-season schedule for 2013, and the Charlotte Hounds will open at home on April 27 against the Denver Outlaws, runners up of the 2012 MLL Championship.
The Hounds will play all home games at Charlotte’s historic American Legion Memorial Stadium, where last year the franchise averaged 5,712 fans per game. The Hounds closed out 2012 with back-to-back wins for an overall 5-9 record.
In addition to seven regular-season home games, the Hounds and city of Charlotte also will play host to the 2013 MLL All-Star game on July 13.
In 2013, the Hounds will play back-to-back Friday road games, May 17 at the Hamilton Nationals at 11:00am ET and May 31 at the New York Lizards at 7:30pm ET. The weekend of May 24-26 is a bye week for all teams in the league. This season the Hounds also will host their first Saturday matinee game on July 20 at 4:00pm ET against the New York Lizards.
The Hounds will finish the season on the road against the defending MLL Champion Chesapeake Bayhawks on August 10.
All eight MLL teams will play each other twice for a balanced season of 56 games that will culminate in Championship Weekend at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. August 24 and 25.
