MACON, GA -- After a thrilling run through the postseason, the defending President's Cup Champion Macon Mayhem go from hunter to hunted.

The SPHL released it's 2017-18 schedule dates and the 28 home dates have been announced for the Mayhem. The home schedule is complete with 12 Friday games, 12 Saturday games, three Thursday games and one Sunday game.

All Thursday, Friday, Saturday games begin at 7:35 p.m. while Sunday games begin at 4:05 p.m. With few three-game weekends on the horizon, the Mayhem are pleased with the outlook for 2017-18.

"I think it looks great," said Mayhem Broadcaster Erik Evenson. "A lot of Fridays and Saturdays so hopefully there will be some big crowds."

One thing standing out on the schedule is long road trips make up a large portion of the schedule. With the best road record in the league a season ago, the Mayhem aren't concerned.

"We showed this year we were one of the best road teams in the league," Evenson said. "That has to do with coaching and the mindset Coach Kerr and Leo Thomas install in these guys."

The Blue Sweaters open the season October 20 complete with a ring ceremony and a raising of the championship banner. The regular season concludes at the Centreplex on April 7.
