April has the potential to be the cruelest month for the Richmond Raiders, who play two of three home games against 2014 playoff teams: the Columbus Lions on April 11 and the Trenton Freedom on April 17. But there’s also a chance for revenge in the April 4 home opener, when the Raiders will face the Alabama Hammers, which defeated them in the 2013 Professional Indoor Football League championship game. The Raiders’ sixth season offers an affordable opportunity to get your football fix while you wait for NFL training camp to open in July. Richmond Coliseum 7 p.m. $7 to $25. 780-0430 or richmondraidersprofootball.com.
