#RUCKUP: 2017 PREMIERSHIP SEASON OPENER, APRIL 8
After a ten-round 2016-17 Winter Footy Season and two pre-season matches, the St. Petersburg Swans open the 2017 Major League Footy Premiership Season vs. the Pittsburgh Blackbirds, Saturday, April 8 at the newly-christened ‘Four ‘N Twenty Field @ Campbell Park’ in downtown St. Pete. Ball up is 7 PM Eastern.
While St. Petersburg, 2016 USAFL D4 Grand Finalists – and also Florida Winter League Premiers – look to build on a successful 2016 season, the Blackbirds are a development metro rules side playing a limited Florida-based 2017 schedule.
Major League Footy is the metro rules competition administered by the Swans and Tampa Bay ARFC.
As in 2016, the St. Pete Swans Home Opener looks to be the footy event of the year in Florida, with fast and furious footy, great food and Australian entertainment. Tickets ($10 general admission) and Swans 2017 Supporter Memberships are now on sale at the club’s website at: stpeteswans.com
