The Richmond Roughriders are excited to announce that we will be playing in the American Arena League in the upcoming 2018 season!
The AAL gives the Richmond Roughriders the opportunity to have great longevity in the city of Richmond, Virginia as well as create the most advantageous situation for our players and fans. We look to continue our newly formed rivalry with the Florida Tarpons as well as spark new ones with last years 2017 champions of their respective leagues, the Vermont Bucks and the Cape Fear Heroes.
"The key to success as a league is to have great ownerships that believe in the system. I feel we can be an asset to the league and help it grow for years to come. We look forward to competing for the AAL championship this season along with the other great teams."
