Destroyers Football Season Begins

Semi-professional football is back in Door County for the 2016 season. The Door County Destroyers are starting preseason on May 7 with a home game. Saturday’s game is their only preseason home game and kickoff will be at 3 pm at the Baileys Harbor Recreational Park on Summit Road, against the Chippewa Valley Predators of Eau Claire.

Head Coach Chris Knapp is looking forward to building on the 2015 season’s success. “We had a smaller roster compared to the other teams – especially in the playoffs – but that roster was packed with tough football players. We have many of our veterans returning this year, and the Destroyers are viewed as the team to beat by many in the MSFL.”

The Destroyers’ schedule does a great job of filling in the months between the end and the beginning of the NFL seasons. Future home games are scheduled for June 18, July 16, July 23, Aug. 6 and Aug. 13. All regular season games are played on Saturdays at 4 pm. Game tickets are $8 each and include one beverage of choice. Tickets are available at the gate on game days, or available in advance by contacting the Destroyers’ Chief Operating Officer Christine Salmon at 920.609.7615.

If interested in volunteering on game days, contact Salmon at 920.609.7615 or [email protected]. For more information visit
