The Swarm will play their division rivals three times each and the remaining nine NLL teams once throughout the season.

"The new division format will foster strong rivalries between us and New England, New York, and Philadelphia. Our talent on the floor is unmatched and ready to compete for another world championship, and the front office has crafted some amazing fan experiences for every Swarm home game."
The Swarm finished their 2018-19 season with a 12-6 record and advanced to the East Division Semifinals, ultimately falling 16-14 against the Toronto Rock in the first round of the postseason.
For a third-consecutive season, Lyle Thompson led the Swarm in points, finishing with 105 (43G, 62A). He was named to the NLL All-Pro First Team and won the NLL Sportsmanship Award for a second-straight season. Rookie Brendan Bomberry was named to the NLL All-Rookie Team after finishing his first NLL season with 17 points (7G, 10A), 61 loose balls, and 10 caused turnovers.
