In the BC Division, the Chiefs will play Victoria, Kamloops, Kelowna and Prince George four times (two home, two away) and the Vancouver Giants twice (one home, one away).

Spokane also maintains its rivalry with the Kootenay Ice facing off against the Central Division franchise five times, including two home games.  The Chiefs will travel to the other five Central Division clubs (Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Red Deer) throughout the year.  

Spokane will host the six Eastern Conference clubs (Brandon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon and Swift Current) throughout the course of the season.  

By month, the Chiefs will host seven games in September/October, and six each in November, December and January.  Spokane will play nine times in the Arena in February and twice in March.
