Capitols Plan Special Events For Home Opener

April 2, 2002 - National Indoor Football League (NIFL) - Lincoln Capitols News Release

This Sunday’s home opener for the new Lincoln Capitols against the Omaha Beef is being touted as a “Capitols home style barbecue.” The two teams are both 1- 0 after Lincoln defeated the LaCrosse Night Train on the road this past Friday 41-21, and the Beef beat Tri-City 37-20 in Omaha.

With kick-off set for 2:00 pm this Sunday at Pershing, the Capitols are planning a big show to start the home season. Free mini-footballs will be given to the first 1,000 fans courtesy of UPS (United Parcel Service) as well as special placards depicting a “queasy” looking cow and the words “Udderly Overrated” punctuated with “Go Capitols!” also to the first 1,000 folks. In addition, everyone in attendance has a chance to win a football signed by 7 Heisman Trophy winners with proceeds going to the Pacific Pals Youth Organization, the featured charity. Numerous giveaways are planned along with the“Dasher Board Dash” game.

The home opener will also feature the debut of the Capitol dancers “The Justice” and the all-new “Rotundas” male dance team.

Lincoln Benefit Life is the official game sponsor.
