B.C. Dragons plan to move indoors

B.C. Dragons plan to move indoors

From staff reports
The Broome County Dragons have found a home indoors for their second season of semi-professional football.

Dragons coach Tom Manny said the Empire Football League-member Dragons will play the first of five scheduled games at the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex on July 15. The complex is located on Airport Road just north of Johnson City.

"One advantage is, you don't have to worry about any rain dates, and we do play into the fall, with playoffs," Manny said.

Scott Craig, vice president of the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex, said the facility's 125,000 square feet of space features a ceiling 70 feet above the playing surface- "So no one's going to hit it," Craig said.

"We'll need to mark the field for football and make a few adjustments with seating and that stuff," he added. "Other than that, we're ready to go. (The Dragons) are talking about drawing 400-500 people, and that'll be easy to do."

Manny said the Dragons will hold player sign-up meetings at 7 p.m. Monday at the YMCA in Delhi, and at 7 p.m. April 10 at Michael Angelo Restaurant in Sidney.
