Ambush to Play Expanded Schedule for 2018-19 Season
St. Charles, MO (January 25, 2018) – The St. Louis Ambush will play a 24-game schedule for the 2018-19 season, the team announced today. The Major Arena Soccer League, of which the Ambush are members, also announced that next season’s schedule would be expanded to 24 games from the current 22. Each team will play 12 games at home and 12 on the road. The MASL also announced the regular season will run an estimated four months, beginning the weekend of December 1, 2018.
“Over the past two seasons we have studied the impact of the MASL’s schedule on our teams and their success. We feel there is more excitement about our game than there has been in a long time. This change in schedule format will allow our teams to capitalize on that excitement and remove many of the roadblocks to delivering the game to fans on more convenient dates,” said MASL Commissioner Joshua Schaub
“Further, we heard from potential ownership groups that they sought more potential dates and revenue. This new schedule obviously accomplishes that desire.”
The new format will also better align with broadcast calendars for any future potential partnerships. The MASL continues negotiations with multiple networks seeking arena soccer to be featured content.
Now that the length of the 2018-19 season has been locked in, the Ambush plan to begin marketing season ticket packages to their fans. Ambush CEO Shelly Clark said season tickets for the 2018-19 season will go on sale next month.
