Vancouver Island Raiders fans will finally get a chance to test out the new bleachers at Caledonia Park. The Raiders are playing their first home game of the season against the Okanagan Sun on Saturday.
The new bleachers are part of the $371,000 the City put towards short term improvements at Caledonia to enable the team to hold championship matches in Nanaimo.
Head Coach Brian Ridgeway says the bleachers will offer fans an even better view of the action.
Other upgrades at Caledonia include a locker room for the visiting team, so they won’t have to change in a tent at the end of the field. Ridgeway says minor improvements are also being made to the Raiders’ locker room.
The Raiders play the Okanagan Sun on Saturday at 4:00pm and they’ll be looking to bounce back after losing 38-nothing to the team last weekend.
