Are you ready for some Football Brooklyn?

NY Post excerpt -

The Cyclones, who are sharing the Bolts’ revenue with the league and running its day-to-day operations, decided to get involved as a way to expand their brand. The fall is usually a dead period in Coney Island as visitors dry up. But Cyclones vice president Steve Cohen envisions families coming out, for the price of $20-$35 a ticket.

With a short turnaround, the plan was to sell 6,300 tickets for the three home games, and he expects to hit that number by Wednesday. That would equate to 2,100 fans per game, filling up less than a third of the stadium, which has a capacity of 7,500.

“It just seems like something that has long-term legs,” Cohen said.
