Richmond Raiders Football Kicks Off March 10
The Richmond Raiders Professional Indoor Football Team begins its 2012 home schedule at the Coliseum on March 10 at 7 p.m. against the Columbus, Georgia, Lions.
Additional home games are scheduled for March 24, April 14, May 5, 10, and June 16. All will be played at the Coliseum beginning at 7 p.m.
This year the Raiders will join a few past season rivals and some new additions in the recently formed Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL). The competition will include the Albany (GA) Panthers, the Alabama Hammers, the Louisiana Swashbucklers, the Columbus (GA) Lions, and the Knoxville Nighthawks.
Raiders’ owner Elizabeth Fraizer said, “We are thrilled to bring the fast action game of professional indoor football to the Richmond area for the third consecutive year. The high level of play, entertainment, family fun, and community volunteer activities by members of the team and the Lady Raiders will be better than ever. All the teams in the new league are strong competitors and have solid and stable ownership. Being located in SEC and ACC territory, each team has a wealth of football talent to draw upon.”
Mrs. Fraizer added, “We are also happy and enthusiastic about the recent improvements to the Richmond Coliseum — with all the sprucing up that has been done and the completion of new seating in the entire lower bowl. Plus, this season our team will have a brand new, state-of-the-art field to play on.
We expect 2012 to be nothing less than a terrific year.”
