Admirals release 2014-15 schedule


Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced that the team will open their 2014-15 season on Friday, Oct. 10 when they host the Charlotte Checkers at 7 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Ads will play a 76-game, unbalanced schedule that will conclude over six months later when they play on the road in Chicago on Saturday, April 18.

At the home opener, all fans in attendance will receive a schedule magnet of the 2014-15 season, while the team's popular concert series and the rest of the promotional schedule will be released soon.

Under the guidance of third-year coach Dean Evason, the Admirals will start their campaign at home for the first time in four seasons and just the third time in the past 10 years.

Some schedule facts:

  • The Ads will play 15 home games on Friday.
  • The Ads will play seven times at the BMOBC on Saturdays and seven games in December.
  • February will see the Admirals play eight times.
  • The five Sunday games will all start at 3 p.m. (except for March 8, which will begin at 4 p.m. with the annual Battle of the Badgers preceding it).
  • March 10-17 is the team's longest road trip.

The Admirals will compete in the Midwest Division of the Western Conference, along with the Chicago Wolves, Rockford IceHogs, Grand Rapids Griffins, and newcomers to the Division, the Lake Erie Monsters.

The Ads will play 44 of their 76 games within their own division with 12 games each against the Wolves and IceHogs, and 10 versus the Griffins and Monsters.

Milwaukee will play their remaining 32 games against teams from the North and West Division, which includes every team in the Western Conference.

Individual tickets for the 2014-15 season will go on sale at a future date. However, season tickets are now on sale, starting at just $185. For more information, or to purchase season tickets, fans can call the Admirals office at 414-227-0550.
