As anticipation continues to grow for the inaugural season of the Duluth Harbor Monsters, the FAN 106.5 is excited to share we'll be partnering up with this arena football team to be their exclusive radio home.

In 2023, Duluth became a finalist to be one of the first markets for this new arena football league, called The Arena League. It was announced later in the year that Duluth would be one of four cities that would be home to the first teams in the league.

Duluth's team, the Harbor Monsters, will be joined by the Ozarks Lunkers of Springfield, Missouri; Iowa Woo of Waterloo, Iowa; and Kansas City Goats of Kansas City, Missouri.

This new league will offer a lot of high-intensity action during their fast-paced games that will be played during the summer months.

As the Duluth Harbor Monsters continue to get ready for the kickoff of their first season, we're excited to announce a new partnership that will bring all of the action of their inaugural season right to your radio, smartphone, computer, and smart speaker.

The Northland FAN 106.5 will be the exclusive radio home of the Duluth Harbor Monsters, making every moment of the season's action available across all of our listening platforms for fans to enjoy.

The season will kick off on Saturday, May 25 with an exhibition game before diving into the regular season at the beginning of June. Our broadcasts will begin with a 15-minute pregame show before game action gets underway, followed by a postgame show.

Here's the regular season schedule (times listed are game start times):

  • Week 1: Duluth @ Kansas City - Saturday, June 1 - 7:05 pm
