USHL - RoughRiders releases 2017-2018 schedule


RoughRiders Announce “Fan Friendly” Schedule

27 Weekend Home Dates Highlight Campaign

CEDAR RAPIDS- The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders have released their 2017-2018 schedule loaded with weekend home games, making it one of the most fan friendly schedules in recent years. 

“We play 27 of our 30 home games on weekends,” said team Co-President Doug Miller.  “This makes it so much easier for families to attend games and for companies to plan outings to the Riders.”

The USHL season gets underway on October 6th, and the first three games for the RoughRiders are on the road.  Their home opener is Saturday, October 14th against the Omaha Lancers.  The Riders will play 17 of their home games on Saturday nights, and ten on Fridays.  “We are very excited to start the 2017-2018 season,” said RoughRiders Head Coach and General Manager Mark Carlson.  “Playing on the road early will be a good experience for our team and we look forward to opening up at home on October 14th vs. a very good team and a very prestigious organization, the Omaha Lancers.”

“Now that the games are in ink on the calendar, we can start working on promotional nights and other exciting events to make coming to games even more entertaining,” said Jason Shaner, RoughRider Corporate Sales Executive.  “We will bring back some of the more popular promotions and are planning to add several new and exciting things to really make the games the best thing to do in Cedar Rapids.”

The schedule includes a home game on Veteran’s Day and the annual “home and home” Thanksgiving weekend match up with arch rival, Waterloo Black Hawks.

“We requested the Veteran’s Day game as a priority date and planning is already in the works to make that a special evening.  The November 24th game against Waterloo will be our annual Teddy Bear Toss, a fan favorite event that really does a lot of good for the community,” continued Shaner.

Individual game tickets will go on sale soon and season tickets are currently on sale.  Season ticket holders enjoy discounts on every ticket and many other perks and amenities.  Details are available at or by calling 319-247-0340.  

“This is going to be a great season and we can’t wait to drop the puck in October,” said Miller.  “Let’s Ride!”
