Omaha's newest sports franchise will be known as the "Omaha Heart." The name was selected from nearly 12,000 submissions from area fans.
The new Lingerie Football League (LFL) team will make its debut at the Ralston Sports & Entertainment Center in April of 2013.
Open tryouts for the squad are planned for Saturday, June 23rd at Off the Wall Indoor Soccer at 6950 South 110th St. from 12:003:00PM.
Athletes planning to tryout should be ready to compete in strength, speed and agility drills. Also, dress attire is athletic wear (sports bra and shorts) with sneakers. In addition athletes are asked to bring a photo and arrive at least 45 minutes early for registration.
The Omaha Heart may also could host the Opening Night celebrations of the LFL season next April. The Heart will compete in the LFL's Eastern Conference against teams from St. Louis, Tampa, Baltimore, Orlando, Philadelphia and Cleveland.
Tickets to Omaha Heart home games will go on sale in July.
