UPDATE DUE TO VENUE AVAILABILITY 

ATLANTA – The National Arena League announced Tuesday that the league made changes to it’s 2021 schedule due to venue related issues with multiple franchises. As a result of upcoming construction, the Jersey Flight lost a home date. In addition, the Orlando Predators lost a date due to a schedule conflict at the Amway Center. The league was able to modify it’s 2021 schedule with minimum impact on the other member teams.

The league is proud to announce all seven teams will continue and hold to it’s 10 week regular season schedule. The 2021 format continues to provide each team four home games, four away games, and two bye weeks before the post-season begins.  

 “We are pleased to be able to adjust our 2021 schedule and meet the needs of all of the member teams” said NAL Commissioner Chris Siegfried. “The updated schedule not only addresses these hurdles, but it gives our teams an additional week to prepare for the 2021 season. Although many of our member teams will have capacity restrictions due to COVID-19, we are thrilled that every team has committed to playing in 2021.”  

The updated 2021 National Arena League schedule is listed below. The first game will now kick off on Saturday May 28 while the last regular season game is scheduled for the weekend of July 31. The 2021 postseason will include one playoff round and a championship game, with the NAL championship scheduled for the weekend of August 14.
