U-F-L Commissioner Michael Huyghue says professional football will be in Omaha this fall. He says the teams are made up of college and former N-F-L players. And this league provides an opportunity for them to extend their careers.
Huyghue the field will be filled with quality players hoping to reach the next level in their career. Last year, over 30 of our players were selected to play and return to the National Football League teams, over 20-percent of our roster.
The 2010 season will run from September through Thanksgiving. For the first year, they will call home Rosenblatt Stadium.
We are excited to play, not only in Rosenblatt Stadium this year but in the new T-D Ameritrade facility in 2011 and beyond.
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.
