Flint, Mich. - The Flint Firebirds Hockey Club announced the composite schedule for the 2019-20 season, presented by Perani's Hockey World.

The Firebirds first game on home-ice will be Saturday, Sep. 28 at 7 p.m. (ET) when Flint hosts the Niagara IceDogs for the Firebirds' fifth-annual Opening Night celebration, which will feature a tailgate party, music, bounce houses for the children and many more family fun activities.

For the fifth consecutive year, Flint will continue the tradition of playing on home-ice the night before Thanksgiving as the Firebirds will host in-state rival Saginaw Spirit on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. The Firebirds 3rd-annual "School Day Game" will also be a highlight of the schedule this year when the club takes the ice against the Sarnia Sting on Wednesday, Nov. 13th at 11 a.m. Any academic administers or educators interested in bringing their students to the Firebirds "School Day Game" can contact the Firebirds' Director of Marketing Dominic Gutierrez by calling (810) 701-8536 or emailing domg@flintfirebirds.com.
