ECHL: Norfolk Admirals Announce 2024-25 Season Schedule

Wyatt Nash/InsideTheRink

After completing their first winning season and taste of the Kelly Cup Playoffs, the Norfolk Admirals have announced their schedule for the 2024-25 ECHL Season. Their 72-game schedule will be comprised of 24 Friday games, 23 Saturday games, 13 Sunday games, eight Wednesday games, and rare games on Tuesday (three) and Thursday (one). The Admirals will kick things off on home ice when they welcome the Adirondack Thunder on October 18th and 19th to Norfolk Scope Arena. The last time these two teams met saw the Thunder bounce back from a 2-0 series deficit in the 2024 Kelly Cup North Division Finals to win the series 4-2. The Admirals will be looking for revenge and to start on the right foot in the first two of an eight-game season series between the two clubs.

The Admirals will have a tough schedule as they will play 64 in-conference games against the Trois-Rivieres Lions, South Carolina Stingrays, Reading Royals, Atlanta Gladiators, Maine Mariners, Thunder, Savannah Ghost Pirates, Greenville Swamp Rabbits, Florida Everblades, Worcester Railers, and the re-conferenced Wheeling Nailers. This means every point the Admirals can scrape during these games will be huge for their position in the Eastern Conference Standings.

The Admirals will play the remaining eight games out-of-conference between the Toledo Walleye, Cincinnati Cyclones, and Iowa Heartlanders.

The Admirals and Walleye will meet for the third straight season in a three-game series. The Walleye hold a 2-4 record over the Admirals over the last two seasons. The Admirals will get their first look at the Heartlanders this season. Since joining in 2021, the Heartlanders have yet to cross paths with this Norfolk team. Iowa has finished last in the Western Conference’s Central Division since their expansion to the league, but it is not a team the Admirals will want to overlook.
