The Bolts are Brooklyn’s first professional football team in decades. According to the Brooklyn Cyclones:

"The FXFL – Fall Experimental Football League – is intended to be a developmental platform for players, coaches and referees who are on the cusp of fulfilling their NFL dream. Rosters will consist of recent college grads and NFL players cut during the final weeks of training camp."

According to the Brooklyn Eagle (which says it will have full coverage of their games), the Bolts will play their first home game Wednesday, Oct. 15 in MCU park, Coney Island.  There will be just three home games this season, and five games all together.
(Fireworks lovers: there will be fireworks at halftime.)
