SIOUX FALLS, SD -- The Sioux Falls Storm is excited to announce the schedule for the upcoming 2013 season.

The Storm is set to open 2013 play on the road at the Green Bay Blizzard on Friday, Feb. 15th.  The Storm's home opener will be held on Sunday, March 17th at the Sioux Falls Arena.

"I am excited for the direction of the IFL," states Storm owner, Todd Tryon.  "For the first time in 5 years I feel like we have a vision for our league and a solid core of teams to build from.

"As the number of teams have dropped, the stronger programs have been defined.  The talent level is as high as it's ever been and with fewer opportunities for players, the parody will be evident.  On behalf of all of Storm Nation, we are excited to have the opportunity to defend our Back to Back titles."
