The National Arena League announced today that as a result of the Covid-19 virus they are officially shifting to an eight-game schedule for the upcoming season. The league has been keeping in contact with all the teams and their respective arenas during the pandemic, working with both team and arena management to find the best solution to be able to play the 2021 season. Due to the continued and varied restrictions around the country, careful consideration was given to finding the best plan of action which would allow each team to continue to play and safely accommodate fans to enjoy the games. At the suggestion of the various arena managers the league felt the best thing to do was to push the schedule back.
“Arena football is all about the fans, they help make the game great. We wouldn’t think about playing without our fans, and this decision was made with them in mind” said Commissioner Chris Siegfried.
The new 2021 National Arena League schedule begins Saturday, May 22 and the last regular season game scheduled for the weekend of July 22 before the postseason, which will include playoff games and a championship game.
The Carolina Cobras' first home game will be Saturday, June 19. Go to the Carolina Cobra's website for more information.
