Happy Home Opener Day, everybody! The Fire will defend their home turf for the first time in 2019 (and the first time since the SeatGeek rebranding). They’ll be looking to build off their solid performance in last week’s loss to LA and grab their first three points against a team that, on paper, they should be able to beat.
