The Cincinnati Cyclones, in conjunction with the ECHL, have unveiled the schedule for the 2023-24 ECHL season.

For the first time since 2019, the Cyclones will open their season on home ice come Saturday, October 21, when the team raises its 2022-23 Central Division Champions banner before hosting the Wheeling Nailers at Heritage Bank Center. This will be the first of 13 Saturday night home games for the 'Clones who are slated to play 29 of 36 home games on weekend dates (12 on Friday, 13 on Saturday, and four on Sunday). The Cyclones won 23 games at Heritage Bank Center last season.

Cincinnati will play 58 of its 72-game schedule within the Central Division next season. For a second consecutive year, the Cyclones will see interstate rival-Toledo more than any other team, as the 'Clones and Walleye are scheduled to face-off 13 times (six home, seven away). Overall, the Cyclones will encounter 14 different ECHL teams, welcoming nine of those clubs to Heritage Bank Center for marquee games such as Field Trip Day (Nov. 14 vs. Fort Wayne), Thanksgiving Eve (Nov. 22 vs. Indy), New Year's Eve (Dec. 31 vs. Jacksonville), Fan Appreciation Night (Apr. 5 vs. Kalamazoo), and several more!

Outside their division, the Cyclones will play 14 games against eight different teams. The 'Clones will see the Wichita Thunder three times throughout the season, while also facing Tulsa, Utah, and Kansas City from the Mountain Division. From the North Division, Cincinnati will go up against Maine and Worcester, while then drawing the South Division's Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Jacksonville IceMen. Thursday, December 28 will mark the first ever visit from Jacksonville to Heritage Bank Center.

Friday, April 5th will mark the end of the home portion of the regular season when the Cyclones host Kalamazoo. Before then, the 'Clones will host a season best four-game homestand from March 15-20, in addition to three other three-game homestands at Heritage Bank Center.
