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.
