The National Lacrosse League has released the Buffalo Bandits schedule for the 2015 NLL regular season.

The Bandits will open their season at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut on Friday, Jan. 2, marking the third straight season-opener against the recently relocated Wings franchise, formerly of Philadelphia.

The Bandits' schedule features four sets of back-to-back games (Weeks One, Five, 11 and 17), the most of any team in the NLL. Buffalo will face their long-time divisional rivals – the Rochester Knighthawks and Toronto Rock – a combined six times in 2015, with only two of those games being played in Buffalo. The team will also have four bye weeks (Weeks Two, 10, 13 and 16).

All nine Bandits home games in 2015 will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Ticket information will be announced at a later date.
