D.C. Divas Announce 2018 Season Schedule and Home Field


Divas Set to Return to Landover for 2018 Campaign
Neal Rozendaal
Washington, DC – The D.C. Divas announced their schedule for the 2018 season today, once again taking on some of the top competition in all of women’s football. The Divas also announced that they will be returning to the Prince George’s Sports Complex as their home field in 2018, making their home in Landover for the 12th time in the last 13 seasons.
The D.C. Divas are the winningest team in women’s football history, earning a record 126 victories against just 40 losses in 17 seasons of play. The Divas have won three national championships in 2006, 2015, and 2016, and they were the first team in the history of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) to win back-to-back national championships with their titles in 2015 and 2016.
The Divas embrace playing one of the toughest schedules in women’s football; the Divas’ strength of schedule has been ranked as one of the two most difficult in the sport eight of the last nine years. D.C. Divas fans will see another outstanding slate of home games in 2018, featuring some of the best competition women’s football has to offer.
The 2018 D.C. Divas will make their home debut on Saturday, April 21, against the Philadelphia Phantomz. In last year’s season opener, the Divas went on the road and held off the Phantomz for a competitive 28-8 victory. Philadelphia, which competed last season in the WFA’s Division II, finished second in the regular season in WFA2’s Northeast Region and will be a strong contender for postseason honors again this year.
The Divas then return home in mid-May for the start of a daunting two-game home stand. First, the Divas welcome their archrivals, the Boston Renegades, to D.C. on May 19. The Renegades, the defending WFA Eastern Conference champions, eliminated the Divas from the playoffs last season by a 27-24 score. Their appearance in D.C. last year resulted in a dramatic 26-22 overtime win for the Renegades, and this year’s contest should feature the same level of excitement and competitive play. Boston has competed in four of the last eight national title games – winning three – and has compiled an 82-12 record over the last nine seasons.
Just one week later, the D.C. Divas will host their longtime rivals, the Pittsburgh Passion, in a Memorial Day weekend game on May 26. The Divas topped the Passion in thrilling fashion last season in D.C., securing a 35-34 overtime win on the final play of the game. Pittsburgh has assembled a record of 92-19 over the past 11 seasons.
Finally, on June 9, the D.C. Divas will conclude their 2018 regular season with a special home game against the venerable New York Sharks. Holding an overall record of 124-44 over 19 seasons of play, the Sharks rank second all-time in victories in women’s football history, two behind the Divas’ 126. The New York Sharks have announced that their 20th season of play in 2018 will be their last, making the June 9th contest against the Divas the final regular season game in the Sharks’ storied history. The Sharks’ regular season finale will be a contest between the two winningest teams in the sport’s history, two franchises with a combined 250 victories between them.
The Divas will play their 2018 home games at Prince George’s Sports Complex in Landover, Maryland. After one year in Northern Virginia, the Divas are returning to their familiar surroundings across the street from FedEx Field in Landover. Prince George’s Sports Complex was the Divas’ home field from 2006-2016, and the Divas are pleased to be returning to Landover for their 2018 campaign.
