Omaha Beef Release 2020 Schedule
Season 21 starts March 7th with NEW Kickoff time!
Ralston‚ NE − 11/05/2019 − The Omaha Beef is proud to announce the release of the 2020 Champions Indoor Football (CIF) schedule, just in time for fans to secure season tickets for the upcoming holiday season. The 2020 season will kickoff in March and culminate with the Champions Bowl in July. The 21st season of Omaha Beef Football brings with it a new kickoff time for all Saturday Night home games. All Saturday Night home games will now kickoff at 6:30pm, with doors to the Slaughterhouse opening at 5:30pm for the general public, and 5:00pm for Season Ticket holders.
Highlights of the 2020 season include familiar rivals and new faces, including a pair of teams making their first ever visit to the Slaughterhouse at Ralston Arena. Catch the first action of the year with a Preseason home game to open up the schedule on March 7th, followed by a road trip for the next two weeks to open up the regular season. First, the Beef travel to the newest CIF rival in West Texas (3/14), and the oldest rival in Sioux City (3/21). The Beef then return for their season home opener on Saturday, March 28th against the Wichita Force. The Beef went 2-0 last season against the Force, and will matchup with their Kansas foe an additional two times thru the 2020 season in Omaha (5/9) and Wichita (6/13). After a bye week on April 4th, the lone matchup against the Oklahoma Flying Aces will take place in Enid, OK on April 11th. Last season saw the Beef ground the Flying Aces in all three matchups.
The lone Sunday matchup (4/19) will surely be one of the hottest games of the season with a 3:05pm kickoff! 2019 Northern Conference Champion Salina Liberty will visit the Slaughterhouse in a game against the Beef’s arch nemesis from last season. Salina stopped Omaha on a game-ending 2-point conversion attempt that sent the Liberty to the CIF Championship over the Beef last June. The Slaughterhouse will sure to be rocking loud with cowbells in this matchup of two of the top CIF teams. The Beef will visit Salina on June 6th.
On Saturday May 2nd, the Amarillo Venom will make their first trip to Omaha, one of two teams that will be brand new to the Slaughterhouse this season. The Beef will make the return trip to the Texas panhandle a few weeks later on May 16th. Memorial Day weekend brings with it the return of the Beef’s annual Heroes Night, a tradition dating back to 2009, as they welcome in I-29 rival Sioux City on May 23rd. The annual Heroes Night, honoring Military, First Responders and Veterans, has become a Beef tradition with grand reception by the Omaha community. Last season featured multiple city mayors, councilmen, military and veteran honorees, and a specialty jersey night auction that raised money for local charities. Rounding out the regular season home schedule will wrap up with a visit from the newest CIF team, West Texas on June 20th.
For the 2020 CIF Playoffs, the top 4 teams will qualify, with the top 2 teams hosting the 3rd and 4th seeds. First round of the playoffs will take place on the weekend of June 27th, and the CIF Champions Bowl will wrap up the 2020 season in early July.
