On Saturday, May 22nd, the Pirates will host their first home game as members of the Indoor Football League as the Spokane Shock pay a visit to the DCU Center at 7:30 PM EST for the Pirates “Opening Night”.
A big milestone for Coach Patrick Pass and the Pirates as the team returns to action to play on Phoenix Field at the DCU Center for the first time since July 27th of 2019! More importantly, the Pirates will welcome fans back to the DCU Center!
The Pirates come into the 2021 home opener against the Spokane Shock after starting the 2021 IFL season with a three-game road trip, which saw the Pirates take on the Louisville Xtreme, Green Bay Blizzard, and Bismarck Bucks.
On the other hand, the Spokane Shock come into May 22nd’s match after opening their 2021 IFL season at home against the Frisco Fighters.
Although it is their first year in the IFL, the Pirates cannot take the Shock lightly. Throughout their existence, the Shock have an impressive 134-50 record in regular-season action. The Shock have also won three indoor football championships.
