Hounds To Open 2014 Season At Home

Hounds To Open 2014 Season At Home


Major League Lacrosse today announced the complete regular-season schedule for 2014, and the Charlotte Hounds will open at home on Saturday, April 26 against the Ohio Machine. All of the league’s eight teams have seven home dates and seven away dates. Each team will play each other twice for a balanced season of 56 games.

The MLL on Thursday announced the addition of the Florida Launch, a new team to play in Palm Beach County at a venue yet to be announced. The Launch will play in place of the Hamilton Nationals, who will not operate during the 2014 season.

The Hounds will play all home games at Charlotte’s historic American Legion Memorial Stadium, where in two years the club has averaged close to 5,000 fans per game. Except for a Week 10 matchup against the Rochester Rattlers on Friday, July 4, all Hounds home games will be played on Saturdays.

Other highlights of the Hounds schedule include a rematch of the 2013 MLL Championship in Week 3, when the Chesapeake Bayhawks travel to Charlotte. The teams will meet again in the final game of the regular season on August 9 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.

The Hounds also will face the Denver Outlaws in back-to-back weeks after the Memorial Day Weekend bye. The Hounds ended the Outlaws’ bid for a perfect season in 2013, defeating the previously unbeaten team 17-14 in the first semifinal matchup of MLL Championship Weekend. The Hounds travel to Denver on Friday, May 30, then host the Outlaws on Saturday, June 7.

In addition to having Memorial Day Weekend off, MLL teams will be on a bye during the week of July 12 to allow for players to participate in the 2014 FIL World Championships. Fans will have a chance to see the U.S. Men’s National Team in action when they face-off against the 2014 MLL All-Stars on Thursday, June 26 at Harvard Stadium in Boston.

The 2014 MLL season will culminate in the Championship Game to be held on August 23 at a neutral site to be announced at a later date. The top four teams in the league will square off the previous weekend in the semifinals, with the fourth seed visiting the top seed and the No. 3 seed traveling to the No. 2 seed.

Season-ticket packages for the 2014 Hounds season are available now at charlottehounds.com/tickets.
