RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - When it comes to professional sports in Richmond--- fans have just one option remaining thanks to various team departures for various reasons, and that one option would be the Richmond Kickers.

The 17-year old franchise opens the regular season tomorrow night at UR Stadium against Harrisburg, and suddenly find themselves alone on Central Virginia's pro sports landscape.

For those familiar with the team--- there will be plenty of recognizable faces on the roster, and for those unfamiliar--- those recognizable faces promise to score a lot, and post enough victories to keep new fans coming back for more.
