The Power will open their fourth season in the Arena Football League at 5 p.m. March 15 against the Eastern Division rival Cleveland Gladiators at Consol Energy Center.
The AFL announced its full schedule Monday, with a 20-week season that includes two off weeks for each team. The regular season ends July 26 at Consol with an Eastern Division game against the Philadelphia Soul. The Power won't play in Weeks 2 and 18.
There will be nine games at Consol, with six kicking off at a new starting time of 5 p.m. The home schedule will be interrupted next summer for more than a month when the Power has three road games and an off week from June 20 until July 26.
The Power will play the two-time defending AFL champion Arizona Rattlers on April 19 at the US Airways Center in Phoenix. The AFL runner-up Soul appear on the schedule three times, including May 3 and July 26 at Consol and June 14 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
