RoughRiders Sign Lease to Stay in Cedar Rapids
CEDAR RAPIDS- The RoughRiders and the City of Cedar Rapids have signed a lease agreement that will keep the team in Cedar Rapids for at least 15 years, with a built-in extension for an additional 20 years beyond that if the team invests at least one million dollars in improvements and upgrades to the arena.
As part of the agreement, the city will add a concession stand, party decks and replace the 19 year old seating in the arena. These improvements will enhance the fan experience during all activities held at the arena.
"The entire RoughRider organization is looking forward to building on all that has been accomplished in the first two decades in Cedar Rapids," said team Co-President Doug Miller. "We are already making plans for improvements across the board to create an even better experience for the fans, sponsors and players here in Cedar Rapids."
"We would like to thank everyone involved in forging this agreement," Miller added. "We feel it is a positive for all involved, especially the fans, and gives us the foundation to be part of Cedar Rapids until 2032 and beyond!"
