The UFL recently has made “major announcements” regarding the relocation of franchises previously headquartered in New York and San Francisco.
On Thursday, the league will be making a “major announcement” in Omaha. The obvious answer? The UFL will be placing a team there.
It fits with the UFL’s plan to expand by two teams in 2010. If so, if means that at at least one more team will be added via a future “major announcement.”
The approach makes sense. The UFL, if it hopes to become a viable minor-league complement to the NFL, needs to put teams not in cities with NFL franchises, but in markets that currently don’t have the outdoor version of pro football.
