The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks are excited to announce their schedule for the 2012 season. The 17 week regular season features 14 games, seven home and seven away, including three bye weeks. The IFL features some new teams this year and is missing some teams from last year. As a result, the Steelhawks will be traveling a little more, making five trips to the mid-west.
Featured on this years schedule are four more matchups with the cross-town rival Reading Express. The Steelhawks will also be looking for redemption against teams they faced last year in Chicago, Bloomington, and Green Bay. The Steelhawks will play each of these teams multiple times. Last years LaCrosse Spartans moved, and are now the Cedar Rapids Titans, who the Steelhawks will also play twice. Making their first trip to the Lehigh Valley is the Omaha Beef who travel to the Stabler Arena for a week 13 matchup.
Important dates to remember for this season are: the Season Opener on February 24th, Home Opener on March 11th, Last Home Game on June 2nd, and the Final Regular season game on June 8th. The Home Schedule includes one Sunday afternoon contest, and six Saturday Night games. The team’s road schedule includes four Friday night contests, and three Saturday night games.
