September 16, 2013 - Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) - Missouri Comets
INDEPENDENCE, MO (September 16, 2013) - The Major Indoor Soccer League released the full 2013-2014 Schedule today. The Comets will play ten regular season games at the Independence Events Center, starting with the previously announced rematch of last season's MISL Semi-Finals against the Milwaukee Wave on November 16th at 7:35pm. The Comets won the season series over the Wave last season, four games to three, including two come-from-behind victories in the Semi-Finals series.
The schedule is highlighted by the return of former Kansas City Comets rival, the St. Louis Ambush. The Ambush will visit the Comets three times. Seven of this season's games will be Friday or Saturday night matches, a popular request of Comets fans. This season will also see the return of fan favorites, Mascot Night (January 5th), Retro Night (January 24th) and the Pink game benefitting The Ali Kemp Educational Foundation (February 14th).
"Our fans give us one of the most formidable home-field advantages in the MISL," said Team President Brian Budzinski. "We fully expect them to pack the IEC on November 16th and set the tone for us as we compete for the trophy this season."
Opening night for North America's top professional indoor soccer league will feature the debut of the Pennsylvania Roar, who will host the Syracuse Silver Knights in their inaugural game at Santander Arena in Reading, Pa. The other MISL newcomer, the St. Louis Ambush, will play their inaugural game the second weekend of the season as they host the Roar at Family Arena in St. Charles, Missouri, on Friday, November 22.
