Returning from a covid-related hiatus, Pittsburgh Passion will open the 2022 season this weekend

Like much of the rest of the world, the Women’s Football Alliance has not been immune to disruption in 2020 and 2021. This weekend, the WFA is back – and so is the Pittsburgh Passion.

The Passion is scheduled to open its season at 6 p.m. Saturday at Detroit Venom. It was the Detroit franchise that the Passion met the last time they played a game – June 29, 2019, in the Eastern Conference Championship Game at West Allegheny High School.

Saturday’s regular season opener at the Hawk Community Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan can be watched on the official Passion Twitter page@pghpassionFB.

The organization has won three national championships, most recently in 2015. For the past two years, they have not played due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

Owned in part by former Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Famer Franco Harris, the Passion’s home opener is scheduled for April 30 against the Tri-State Warriors.

Their six-game regular season runs until the last weekend in May.
