The Tri-City Americans will return to play at Toyota Center on Thursday, March 18th at 7:05 pm against the Portland Winterhawks. This will be the Americans first game in 372 days since playing on March 11th, 2020 here against the Kamloops Blazers.
The Americans organization is among the many companies in Washington that were directly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and forced to close as well as it’s home, the Toyota Center. The team is rebounding from the closure to play a 24-game spring season. All 12 home games will be carried live on SWX which is available on Spectrum Cable 183, over the air at 25.3 digital in the Tri-Cities and 23.3 digital in Yakima. Due to the pandemic, virtually no fans will be allowed currently to attend.
The Americans are entering their 33rd season in the Mid-Columbia and in its continuing effort to be a valued community partner and asset would like to help a reopening Mid-Columbia business trying to recover from the pandemic with an ad schedule on the club’s live radio broadcasts aired live on NewsTalk 870 AM KFLD and on 98.7 FM. One area business will be selected and receive the complimentary advertising.
Businesses that were closed due to being ruled “non-essential” by the state may apply for this radio time.
