BLAST ANNOUNCES 2011-12 SCHEDULE
32nd Season of Indoor Soccer in Baltimore Will Begin on November 12
The Baltimore Blast announced the full schedule for the 2011-12 season. The team will open the season at 1st Mariner Arena on Saturday, November 12 against the Syracuse Silver Knights, one of the new MISL clubs. The Blast will play 24 games this season, 12 at home and 12 on the road, and will compete against teams from Milwaukee, Missouri, Syracuse, Rochester, Wichita, Norfolk and Chicago.
The eight MISL teams will be divided into two geographic divisions, Eastern and Central, for the 2011-12 season. Each team will play 24 regular season games, 16 of those games within their division - six games against their nearest geographic rival and five games each against the other two teams. They will face each of the teams from the other division twice, once home and once away.
The MISL playoffs will begin with the semifinals March 9-11, featuring the top two teams from each division meeting in a home-and-home series with a mini game to decide the series following the second game if needed. The championship will follow the same format on March 16-18. The higher seed will choose which game it hosts.
