Chesapeake Bayhawks May 2014The Chesapeake Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced their 2015 MLL schedule today. Chesapeake will open the season at home against the Florida Launch on April 19th. The Bayhawks return for their sixth summer at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD. The 2015 MLL regular season will consist of 14 weeks, 7 home games and 7 away games.

The Bayhawks’ 2015 home schedule will feature two Sunday games, two Thursday games, and Saturday games. The schedule is highlighted by a matchup versus the defending champion Denver Outlaws on Saturday, June 6. Other season highlights will include a matchup with the New York Lizards on Thursday, July 2nd to kick off the fourth of July weekend, and a showdown with the Boston Cannons on Thursday, July 16th.

The Bayhawks will begin their season with a home and home series against the Florida Launch. The Launch will come to Annapolis on Sunday, April 19th, while Chesapeake will head to Boca Raton, FL on Sunday, April 26th. The Bayhawks split the series with the Launch in the 2014 season, falling to Florida 15-12 at home on May 17th, before exacting revenge in Boca Raton with a dominating 18-11 win on June 28th. Florida boasts a talented roster, highlighted by 2014 MLL MVP; Casey Powell, and Rookie of the Year; Kieran McArdle.

“The 2015 season presents many new challenges,” said Bayhawks Head Coach and President, Dave Cottle. “Every team will be affected by the season beginning earlier. We have some tough challenges early; it’s always difficult when you play the same team back to back. The Sunday games also present an interesting challenge, as the league has never featured Sunday games before. Having said that, we are looking forward to seeing our fans “Take it to the Field” in the 2015 season. Our ticket holders are so important to the team and the organization, and we are excited to have them so close to us on the field to experience the game the way we do.”

All teams in the MLL will have a bye week the second weekend in June due to the MLL All-Star Game. The 2014 All -Star Game was held in Boston, MA where 10,327 fans were treated to an epic game in which Team USA edged out Team MLL 10-9.

Throughout the summer the Bayhawks will be hosting a variety of promotional events in coordination with their home games. In 2014, the Bayhawks hosted a Reichardt Foundation Night, Annapolis Green, and a Military Appreciation Night. These nights raised funds for the respective organizations. In 2015, the Bayhawks will continue to support local charity organizations through their promotional nights. More details will be released as the schedule of events for 2015 is set.

Bayhawks 2015 season tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling the Bayhawks Front Office at 866-99-HAWKS (42957). Reserve your seat today and see the Chesapeake Bayhawks battle to defend their MLL title at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium this summer. This season the Chesapeake Bayhawks announced an upgraded 2015 Club season ticket package, Take It To The Field, which offers fans just that – a seat on the field.
