“This exhibition game will give our loyal fans an early glimpse of the 2016 roster,” said Roughnecks general manager Mike Board, ahead of the 20-player roster deadline of Dec. 18. “As we prepare for our 15th anniversary season, we will use this holiday event to thank our fans for their growing support and provide new fans with the chance to join the party and experience the incredible energy at the ’Dome during a Roughnecks game.”
The Roughnecks Holiday Party Showcase will open at 12:00 p.m. with Select-a-Seat, providing fans with the opportunity to choose from the best available seat locations for the 2016 NLL season.
