Richmond Raiders – Clash of the Best!

Saturday, April 12th is going to be big!

Kickoff is at 7:00 pm, but doors open at 5:30 pm. Make sure to get there early to enjoy the fun!

The Richmond Raiders and the Alabama Hammers proved to be the best two teams in the PIFL, squaring off for the league championship, last season.

Both teams have had a disappointing start to the season, and look for their first win of the season at this great mash up.

The Raiders‘ home opener will be First Responders night, sponsored by Genworth and FOX Richmond.
