On late Wednesday morning, the Arena Football League (AFL) officially welcomed the newest team to the league with the unveiling of the Baltimore AFL team name.
Meet the Baltimore Brigade, which will be the league's fifth team for 2017.
Monumental Sports & Entertainment, the Wizards and Capitals' parent company, announced the launch of the Baltimore AFL team in the Fall after launching the AFL's fourth team, the Washington Valor earlier in 2016.
Now that the Brigade have their name, they can march forward toward starting AFL play in 2017.
The team will be coached by Omarr Smith, a long-time AFL player and coach who spent the last season as the head coach of the Los Angeles Kiss.
Smith played collegiate football at San Jose State before going on to win seven AFL championships as a player. He was inducted into the AFL Hall of Fame in 2014.
The Brigade will play their home games at Royal Farms Arena and will begin their inaugural season on April 7 against the Washington Valor.
