“We welcome what has become one of sports best live experiences to Verizon Wireless Arena. New Hampshire and all of New England is rich in football history and fanfare, with the arrival of the New England Liberty, New England natives can now enjoy football year-round’, said Tim Bechert, General Manager, Verizon Wireless Arena.
The Liberty will kickoff April 2016 in the LFL’s Eastern Conference alongside the Chicago Bliss, Omaha Heart and Atlanta Steam, hosting two home games at Verizon Wireless Arena with the home opener on Saturday, June 25 vs. Chicago Bliss and the home finale on Saturday, July 23 vs Atlanta Steam. Tickets are set to go on sale November 17 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting the Verizon Wireless Arena box office.
“Launching a New England franchise was a goal we set at the inception of the sport in 2009. However, we could not locate the right arena or stadium partner. We believe Verizon Wireless Arena in New Hampshire provides us a great building and support staff as well as being centrally located within New England,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder & Chairman, Legends Football League.
