Memphis Showboats Prepare for Home Opener

Grab your floaties! The Memphis Showboats home opener is this Saturday at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium. Before heading down to Tiger Lane, hit the home opener pep rally on Friday night on Beale.

The Showboats opened the season at Houston with a 18-12 victory ahead of Saturday's matchup against San Antonio. The game kicks off at 11 a.m. and tickets start as low as $10 (plus fees). Support the boats and get your tickets.

Ahead of the matchup, head to Handy Park on Beale Friday night for the home opener pep rally from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for fun for the whole family, player autographs, and giveaways. This season the Memphis Showboats are playing under the newly merged United Football League. 

The team is lead by new head coach John DeFilippo. DeFilippo was previously with the head coach for the New Orleans Breakers and the Chicago Bears quarterback coach before that.

The Memphis Showboats went 5-5 in their first season under the USFL.

For the 2024 season there are five home games for Memphis. Check out the full schedule here.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
