Pioneers to open season at St. Paul Central's Griffin Stadium

Because of a scheduling conflict at Sea Foam Stadium, home to the Pioneers for the past five seasons, St. Paul will open the 2017 season with a home game in a different stadium. But that stadium is only a half mile away.

Historic Griffin Stadium at St. Paul Central High School is the site of the Pioneers' season-opening contest April 29 against the Northland Bulls. It is the second time in their history that the Pioneers have played at Central. In 2009, in the North American Football League playoffs, the Pioneers defeated the Racine Raiders on their way to winning their first National Championship.

Central High School is located at 275 Lexington Parkway N., just south of Interstate 94. We look forward to seeing you there, as the Pioneers begin our 16th season and seek to defend our NEFL title for an eighth straight year.

Tickets are just $10 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Pioneers to host annual Minicamp March 25

The St. Paul Pioneers, seven-time consecutive champions of the Northern Elite Football League, will hold their annual full-contact mini-camp on Saturday, March 25, at the practice complex at St. Paul's Jimmy Lee Recreation Center.

This is a full-contact camp and football equipment is required to participate. This is the final step for those trying out for the 2017 team.

Players invited to the mini-camp who have not been to a previous pre-season tryout will be asked to pay a $20 fee. Players from last year's active roster and those who have attended earlier tryouts do not have to pay.
Coaches will set the roster after minicamp and regular Thursday night practices will begin the next week.
Pioneers: It's time to roll out!

Two terrific tryouts done, one last preseason tryout scheduled.

One of the best amateur football teams in the country is holding its final pre-season tryout for 2017. Don't miss your chance to see if you can become a Pioneer. The St. Paul Pioneers -- winners of seven consecutive NEFL crowns -- have a few spots left for players with the talent, the drive and the character to be champions. We are looking for outstanding players at ALL position groups. We are consistently successful because each year we are joined by new players whose talents and contributions make us stronger. Will that be you this year? Join us under the bubble at Concordia University-St. Paul's Sea Foam Stadium. Registration begins at 4:30 p.m. Cost to try out for new players is $20. Players who finished the 2016 season on the Pioneers roster and those who attended either of the first two tryouts will be admitted free. Wear workout clothes and football shoes. You will be tested in a number of football specific drills. We hope to see you there!
