You may recall that the original faceoff time was scheduled for a 7:00 PM start. That was changed because there was the possibility of another event being scheduled in the evening. That has since changed, but the game start was not going to be shifted back.
So once again, if you’re heading to Hartford this Saturday for the game against the bears, faceoff time is now 3:30 PM.

Greenville, S.C. | March 4, 2015 – The Greenville Road Warriors have signed a new five year lease with the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The partnership will allow the team and the arena to work together to develop innovative sales strategies that expand the Road Warriors’ fan base, increase attendance and maximize the investment of its sponsors.
The Road Warriors, who came to Greenville in 2010, were purchased by current owner, Fred Festa, Chairman & CEO of W.R. Grace and Co., in 2012, and are making Greenville their permanent home. Since Festa took ownership, the team has seen the highest single season total attendance since its return to Greenville, as well as the highest regular season average attendance. The team has also developed significant community partnerships with local non-profits and community organizations including the Boy Scouts of America Blue Ridge Council, Greenville Zoo, the Children’s Museum of the Upstate, Harvest Hope Food Bank, the American Cancer Society and numerous military and first responder-related causes.
