Who will be the next coach remains a mystery, but who, when and where the Condors are playing during the upcoming season has been revealed.

The Condors released their 2013-14 season schedule on Wednesday,  which starts with an opening night game at home against the Colorado Eagles on Oct. 18.

That game will be a rare Condors-Eagles meeting as the teams play each other just four times (two times in each city.)

“We’re really excited about the schedule this season with 30 of 36 home games falling on the weekend or on holidays,” said Condors President Matthew Riley. “It gives families the opportunity to enjoy fun, affordable, and entertaining nights out with something for everyone.”

And, as a little added spice, Riley is guaranteeing the Condors, who have not reached the playoffs the past two seasons, will do so this season or tickets are free.

If the Condors do no make the Kelly Cup finals this season, anyone purchasing, or having already purchased a season ticket plan, Pick-6 or larger, will receive six free tickets for the 2014-2015 season.

'We will make the playoffs, I guarantee it,” Riley said. “But if we don't, it's no skin off our back, because all of the free tickets will come out of JO's paycheck.”

JO is team general manager, John Olver, who was hired on April 11 and charged with hiring a coach and putting a winning team on the ice.

“Thirty years in the hockey business and I have never missed the playoffs,” Olver said. “I don't expect that streak to end this season.”
