Waterloo Plays at Young Arena Three Times in Preparation for 2018/19

The Waterloo Black Hawks’ challenging 2018 exhibition schedule begins on the road Friday, September 14th; a matchup that night will be the first of five games in nine days, the team announced Monday.

The hectic slate starts in Des Moines against the Buccaneers as part of a home-and-home weekend.  The Bucs then make their way to Young Arena to face the Black Hawks on Saturday, September 15th at 3 p.m.

Waterloo will also meet the Omaha Lancers and Cedar Rapids RoughRiders as United States Hockey League teams prepare their rosters for the USHL Fall Classic in Pittsburgh, September 27th to 30th.  The 2018/19 season marks the first time that games played at the Fall Classic will count toward the regular season standings.  The Hawks’ home opener is Saturday, October 13th versus the Green Bay Gamblers.

The on-sale date for preseason tickets - as well as pricing details - will be announced at a later time.  Black Hawks season ticket holders receive their admission to the team’s preseason home contests within their package at no additional charge.  Season tickets are on sale now; for more information, contact the Black Hawks at (319) 232-3444.
