The Western Lacrosse Association has released their 2021 regular season schedule with the Langley Thunder set to host the Coquitlam Adanacs. The game against Coquitlam – which will also be the first game of the WLA season -- is scheduled for June 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Langley Events Centre.

One change for the 2021 schedule – which is still contingent on the league receiving permission from the Provincial Health Authority to stage the campaign – is that the seven teams will each play a 12-game schedule, down from the traditional 18 games. Each team will complete a home-and-home set against the rest of the league.

The six Thunder home games will all be played on Wednesday nights.

Here is the full Thunder schedule: (home games in italics)
