Spokane will open the season by hosting their renewed in-state rival in the Tri-Cities Fever on Saturday, February 27 with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff. After a Week 2 bye, the Shock will face off against their second West Division opponent with a road game against the Billings Wolves.

At the mid-way point of the season, Spokane will host their fellow IFL expansion partner in the Minnesota Havok on Friday, April 29 and then welcome the Billings Wolves to town on Saturday, May 7 for the final double-header home stand of the season.
