New York takes on Pittsburgh for second time this season

August 11, 2021

The New York Empire return to Joseph F. Fosina Field this Saturday, August 14 at 7:00pm. They’ll take on the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds for the second time this season.

The Empire are coming off their biggest win of the season, defeating Raleigh 24-23 in double overtime this past Saturday. They put an end to Raleigh’s league-best seven game win streak, and have now played two of the most exciting games in recent history against the Flyers; the two teams’ first meeting in 2019 also resulted in a double overtime one-goal win for New York. 

At 6-2 the Empire currently sit in fourth place in the Atlantic Division but will look to make a push to host a home playoff game the first week of September. The top four teams in the division make the playoffs, with the top two hosting playoff games; New York will need to win out to have a shot at securing home field advantage. 

Tickets for this game are available at the official team store.
