We've known for a few months that indoor football was returning to Evansville with the announcement of that the Indiana Firebirds will be part of the National Gridiron League back in September. We've also known since mid-January the team will play their first home game inside the Ford Center on April 12th.

Like the NFL, the team will play a 16-game schedule split between eight home games and eight road games. The team will kick off their season April 6th in St. Charles, Missouri before their home opener the following Friday. Here's the full schedule from the team's website:
