The Pittsburgh Passion women's football team released its 2018 schedule Tuesday, and the program's 17th campaign begins with a game at the Cleveland Fusion on April 7.

After a bye week, the Passion will play three straight games at home, with the home opener against the Boston Renegades at 6:30 p.m. April 21 at West Allegheny's Joe P. DeMichela Stadium.

The rivalry continues with the DC Divas, and the Passion will host that game April 28.

Pittsburgh, a member of the Women's Football Alliance, has won three national championships — 2007, 2014 and 2015 — and it finished each of those seasons undefeated.

The Passion completed the 2017 regular season 6-2 and defeated the Atlanta Phoenix in the first round of the WFA playoffs before falling to the Chicago Force in the quarterfinals.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
