The Raiders will hit the road for the first time on March 30 when they venture to Knoxville, and will have back-to-back road games on April 20 and 27 against the Lions and SteelHawks respectively. An off week will precede the longest road trip of the year, when the Raiders trek to Lake Charles, LA to take on the Swashbucklers. That game is in the middle of a three game, four week stretch in May during which the Raiders will face all three other playoff teams from last year. The Raiders will play every other team in the league twice, once at home and once on the road. Dates with the Panthers and Hammers, in Albany on June 1 and in Huntsville on June 8, complete the road portion of the schedule.
For the second straight year, the Raiders will compete in the Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL) with a schedule of six home games and six road games, with playoffs to follow. The Raiders went undefeated at home in 2012 and finished the regular season in a first place tie atop the PIFL standings. After a hard fought win over Louisiana in the PIFL semifinals before a raucous Richmond Coliseum crowd, the Raiders were edged out by the Albany Panthers for the league championship.
The Raiders will play all their home games at the Richmond Coliseum. Season tickets start as low as $30, and are available on the Raiders’ website, www.RichmondRaidersProFootball.com, or by calling 1-855-GO-RAIDERS or 804-780-0430. Individual game tickets, starting as low as $7, will go on sale at a later date.
