The Winnebago Tribe's economic development corporation is the majority owner of the Lincoln Haymakers, a new indoor football team.
"We are committed to economic development in our region and in the state," said Ho-Chunk CEO Lance Morgan, who noted the tribe has a 150-year history in Nebraska. "This is an opportunity for us to provide both an entertainment venue and a spots franchise for Lincoln, and it is an opportunity to be associated with a game that all Nebraskans love."
The Haymakers will play in the newly formed Champions Professional Indoor Football League. Their rivals will include the Sioux City Bandits, which has moved to the six-league.
