The Boston Cannons unveiled their 2018 scheduled this morning, which includes 14 games, including seven home contests at Harvard Stadium.
Boston will begin its campaign on the road with a pair of late April contests against Atlanta and Charlotte before playing their initial game at home on Saturday, May 5 against the Dallas Rattlers.
The Rattlers re-located this offseason to Dallas, but spent the past six years competing in Rochester.
After hosting the Rattlers, Boston will visit Florida five days later on Thursday, May 10 before returning home for their next three contests.
The Cannons will compete twice in the month of June with their lone home contest scheduled against the New York Lizards on Saturday, June 23.
Following a home date with the Lizards, the Cannons will play three of their next five games on the road, including a July 4th tilt at Denver before playing their final two games at home. Their season finale pits the Cannons against the Ohio Machine, which captured the 2017 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Championship in August.
Boston will be idle twice this season in weeks six and nine, but should have a few members of the team compete in the 2018 MLL All-Star Game on Thursday, June 28. A location for the All-Star Game, as well as the Championship will be announced at a later date. Last year, the All-Star Game was held in San Diego, California.
