After a year without hockey, the Quad City Storm has announced the opening date for their 2021-2022 season.

The Quad City Storm will be launching their season on October 15th at the TaxSlayer Center.

A team hasn't been determined, but that's still a few months away.

Brian Rothenberger, the team's new General Manger, stopped by this morning to make the announcement and discuss some of what the last year looked like for the team.

The last game played by the Storm was on March 8th, 2020, just before the country shutdown because of the pandemic.

He explained that while some other teams in the country were able to play, because of Illinois' restrictions, they weren't able to host any games. The TaxSlayer was restricted to 50 people, which after players and the team's staff, didn't leave enough room for fans.

As restrictions are continuously being lifted as the country gets back to normal, Brian and the QC Storm are hoping to have a packed stadium by the time opening day rolls around.

Season passes are available now, with smaller ticket packs and eventually single tickets becoming more available as opening day draws closer.

Season tickets are available for $399 at ANY seat in the stadium, until July 4th when prices increase.
