Fayetteville Fury Announce Full NISL Season Schedule
FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fayetteville Fury is pleased to announce the full schedule of games for its sophomore campaign in the National Indoor Soccer League (NISL) where the men’s team will look to defend their championship title from the inaugural season.
NISL added two expansion teams in the Sunshine State during the off-season, Tampa Bay Strikers and Central Florida Crusaders out of Orlando. The Strikers and Crusaders join the Fury and other returning teams in Memphis (Americans) and Columbus (Rapids).
The Fury will start their season on the road and be the last league team to host their home opener. Scheduled for Saturday, February 18, Fayetteville will battle a familiar foe when the Memphis Americans arrive for a 6:00 p.m. EST first kick for the home doubleheader.
