ST. PETE HOSTS SCRIMMAGE AS TIGERS BOW
The scrimmage will begin at 11 AM, and marks the first action of the Major League Footy 2017-’18 Florida Winter Season.
The debuting Lakeland Tigers are led by USAFL veteran Patrick Bilder (New York/Baton Rouge/St. Petersburg), and will play a limited number of matches in the coming season as part of the MLF Elite Series.
Admission and parking are free, and the scrimmage will immediately follow the regularly-scheduled pre-season training session.
The Major League Footy 2017-’18 season kicks off Saturday, 18 November, as Orlando visits St. Pete.
St. Petersburg (3-1) captured the 2016-17 MLF Premiership flag by defeating the previously undefeated Suncoast Suns, while Orlando went winless at 0-3 in a rough Inaugural campaign.
