After a successful regular season at the JRC the Edmonton Senior Warriors are being chased out.
In the midst of gearing up for a run at the Presidents Cup, the City of Fort Saskatchewan has decided to not let the team host playoff games at the Jubilee Recreation Centre.
The decision was posted online yesterday (July 19) on the RMLL website.
"It's pretty disappointing, our whole team's upset about it," said forward Darren Bourret. "You want to play at the same place you've called home all year."
As it stands right now the red army is scheduled to play games three and four out of the Go Auto Arena in St Albert, but they're still looking into other options.
"We've loved playing in the community and it's sad having to move at the time of year it is now," said forward Erik Turner.
The Warriors crowds have nearly quadrupled in Fort Saskatchewan since they decided to more here in April.
"Everyone was like 'oh we play out of the Fort, but now I guess we don't,'" added Bourret.
The move was reportedly to get ready for the hockey season. The City of Fort Saskatchewan declined to comment on the issue.
