The National Lacrosse League released the Georgia Swarm’s 2017 regular season schedule on Wednesday. Georgia opens the season at home against the two-time defending champion Saskatchewan Rush on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 7:05 p.m. at Infinite Energy Arena. The Swarm will hit the road the following week to take on the reigning East Division champs, the Buffalo Bandits, on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

The Swarm finished 8-10 in 2016 and clinched a playoff spot in the East Division where they ultimately lost on the road to the New England Black Wolves in an overtime thriller, 14-13, in the Division Semifinals. Georgia will get its first chance at revenge against New England at home on Friday, Jan. 20 at 7:35 p.m.

“We’re excited to begin Year 2 of Georgia Swarm Lacrosse here at The Hive,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “Our organization is committed to offering Swarm fans with an action-packed entertainment experience at an affordable rate at one of the best venues in the Southeast. There’s a lot to look forward to in regards to our team on the field, and we’ve made several moves this offseason to better position ourselves for a run at the Champion’s Cup.”
