Greater Binghamton’s semi-professional football team is ready to kick-off its second season on Saturday.
The Broome County Stallions held a fundraiser today at American Legion Post 80 in Binghamton.
They sold dinners from Smokin’ Bones BBQ to raise money for the upcoming season.
The Stallions are members of the 16 team Northeastern Football Alliance.
Last year, they lost in the playoffs during their inaugural season.
Saturday’s home opener is against Carthage.
Owner and coach Jeremy Polhamus says the players on the Stallions are not paid, they play for the love of the game.
“It’s definitely a different environment when we have a lot of fans at the game. Even last year, our home crowd was significantly larger than any other team we faced. So it was a really good feeling being able to play and put on a show and be able to entertain our community. If we can get even more people out there, it’s going to be even better for us,” he said.
The Broome County Stallions play their home games at Binghamton Alumni Stadium behind East Middle School.
Saturday’s game begins at 5 p.m., but the remaining games start at 7 p.m
