“We can’t wait to get this season started in front of the best fans in the league at an increased capacity,” said General Manager, Peter Marlette. “The players and technical staff have been putting in serious work since our disappointing end to last season and I’m excited for them to be able to put that work on display all season long. Our schedule has some tough stretches in there and it’s going to be a grind, but everyone in this organization knows that we’re working towards one goal this year and it’s the League One championship.”
All 28 games will broadcast on ESPN+. Single-game tickets will be announced at a later date.
Werner Park will operate under limited capacity until further notice. COVID -19 protocols for Werner Park may change throughout the season as vaccines become available to everyone. The most updated version of the COVID-19 protocols can always be found on our website's COVID-19 tab.
