The Atlantic Coast Patriots are moving their home field to Lancaster County this year.

The Patriots played its first season last year at Hersheypark Stadium in Dauphin County. It will begin its second season March 22 at Millersville University, said Ronald Sultzbach, head coach and one of two owners of the team. Sultzbach said he tried to place the team at Millersville last year but scheduling conflicts arose. Both team owners are from Lancaster County, he said.

“We feel that the community surrounding Millersville is very supportive of anything that happens there,” Sultzbach said. “We thought that we could grow the fan base just from that community.”

The minor-league football team is a nonprofit organization that competes in the East Coast Football Alliance, which is made up of 20 teams. The Atlantic Coast Patriots have about 60 players, most of which are from local colleges and high schools, said team spokesman Art Carter.
