UNB Red Bombers return to College Field for weekend game

It's a homecoming of sorts for the UNB Red Bombers football team as they return to College Field for the first time in nearly four decades.

UNB will host the Holland College Hurricanes in an Atlantic Football League matchup on Saturday afternoon.

The team's home games are now played at BMO Centre field on campus, but they used College Field as their home turf from 1949 to 1980.

Kickoff for Saturday's game — advertised as "Heading Home to College Field" — is at 1 p.m.

Church Street will be closed between McLeod Avenue and Aberdeen Street until 6 p.m. Saturday.
