Rafters F.C. Preparing for Home Opener

April 20, 2017 - The 2017 season is here for the Shreveport Rafters.

They are playing their home opener at Messmer Stadium this Saturday.

The Rafters have high hopes for 2017 after making the playoffs last year.

A handful of guys are back from last year's squad, including forward Steven Bush.

They're looking forward to getting things started.

Greg Palmer said, "It's been a long time coming from last season, and obviously the success of last season has driven us, especially the coaching staff, to building a team for this year. Having our first home game this weekend is exciting for us, and exciting for the town of Shreveport."

Steven Bush said, "We're very excited. We've got a bunch of new players coming in. Hopefully our quality is going to be a little bit higher, play a little bit different style. We're very excited going into the season."

The Rafters get their season started Saturday night. Game gets going at 7:00 at Messmer Stadium.
