It is official. U-F-L Commissioner Michael Huyghue announced today that Omaha has been selected as the first expansion city in the United Football League. He says professional football will be in Omaha this fall. He says the teams are made up of college and former N-F-L players.
The 2010 season will run from September through Thanksgiving. For the first year, they will call home Rosenblatt Stadium. In 2011, they will move to the new T-D Ameritrade ballpark located downtown. There are currently four U-F-L teams and they play a six game season. League officials say the games are expected to be televised. The first home game is September 18th.
