The Winnipeg Goldeyes have announced their 2021 season schedule! The season will begin on the road against the Sioux Falls Canaries on May 18, 2021. Their home opener will take place Friday, May 21st against the Chicago Dogs at Shaw Park.
“We are very excited to share the 2021 schedule with our fans, and look forward to helping play a role in our collective return to normalcy,” said Goldeyes’ general manager Andrew Collier. “Last year, the American Association demonstrated that games could be played in front of crowds while maintaining a safe environment. We have developed a thorough COVID-19 readiness plan, and look forward to cooperating with local, provincial, and federal leadership in protecting everyone who visits Shaw Park this summer.”
The American Association returns to a continuous, 100-game format with the league split into two divisions. The top two teams from each division (based on regular season winning percentage) meet in a best-of-five Division Series. The winners then advance to the best-of-five American Association Championship Series.
