The Colorado Mammoth’s 2018-19 campaign will kick off earlier then any other year in franchise history as the loud house welcomes the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday, December 1st.

This is Colorado’s third season-opener against Calgary. The Mammoth won their last two season-opening matchups against the Roughnecks, both at Pepsi Center, in 2005 and 2009.

The Mammoth’s season opener is the first of three games the team will play in December. After a road game on Dec. 8th, in Saskatchewan against the reigning NLL Champions, the Mammoth will return to Pepsi Center on Saturday, Dec. 22, to take on the newest franchise in the West, the San Diego Seals.

Colorado will meet San Diego three times in the regular season, twice at home (Dec. 22 and March 23). Meeting their other three division opponents for three games each, the Mammoth will play 12 games against their West Division rivals. Last season, the Mammoth only played 10 division rivalry games, splitting them 5-5.

Colorado will play six games against East Division teams this season, including the league’s newest eastern franchise, the Philadelphia Wings, who the Mammoth meet once on the road (Feb. 9). With six wins and two losses against eastern teams last season, the Mammoth recorded the best non-division record in the league.

The regular-season finale set for Friday, April 12. Colorado will play just one other Friday game (Mar. 22) and one Sunday matinee (Jan. 20 at 1 p.m. MST). The Mammoth will play seven home games on Saturdays at 7 p.m.
