Voltage opens on new field

The Vermont Voltage soccer team is looking forward to opening the season on new territory — at Burlington High School. After 12 years playing at the Collins-Perley Sports Complex in St Albans, the Voltage were forced to find a new venue due to major renovations occurring this summer at Collins-Perley.

Saturday marks the opening game for the Voltage as they take on the Ottawa Fury. The game on May 23 begins at 7 p.m. at the new Burlington High School sports complex.

Voltage fans can expect the same entertainment available in St Albans, with local dance teams, Sparky the Voltage mascot, food, and soccer. Tickets are $6 for adults and $2 for children.
