With a new CBA finalized on Saturday, the Georgia Swarm’s 2018-19 Home Opener is now set for Saturday, Dec. 15. The Swarm will welcome the New England Black Wolves to Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena for a 7:05 p.m. ET faceoff.
That evening, Georgia will host its fan-favorite Star Wars Night presented Peachtree Orthopedics. This year, Swarm players will be wearing special Star Wars-themed jerseys and shorts. Following the game, fans will have the opportunity to bid on game-used, autographed Star Wars uniforms. Select proceeds from the uniform auction will benefit the Rally Foundation.
Early arriving fans will receive light-up Bamstix and have the opportunity to mingle with several dozen Star Wars characters in the 501st Legion, Georgia Garrison throughout the game. Fans can purchase tickets by visiting GeorgiaSwarm.com/StarWars or calling 844-4-GASWARM.
“I want to thank our fans for their patience over the past few weeks,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “With a new CBA agreed upon, we can now get back to business and enjoy the game we all love. Our expectations remain high this season as we once again will feature a team that is capable of competing for a world championship.”
Additionally, Georgia’s new Training Camp dates will be announced later this week.
In 2017-18, the Swarm claimed its second-straight East Division Regular Season title after winning its final six games to finish the season at 11-7. Georgia ultimately fell 9-8 against the Rochester Knighthawks in the East Division Finals.
