ABOUT THE RACINE RAIDERS
The Racine Raiders capped the team's 60th season of operation with the eighth national championship in team history, defeating the Nashville Storm, 38-24, in front of nearly 3,500 fans at Historic Horlick Athletic Field in Racine on Saturday, November 10. The team is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization that is organized very similarly as the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (no single owner; run by a board of directors). The team averaged nearly 2,000 fans at each home game during the 2012 campaign.
