FORT WORTH -- The Texas Brahmas are on their way back to Fort Worth
The Brahmas will play two home games, Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3 against the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
“We are very excited about this unique opportunity,” said Brahmas majority owner Stuart Fraser. “Our goal is to bring tremendous crowds downtown, which will be great for our season ticket holders, our sponsors and sports fans in general.”
“We believe this will bring additional business to downtown Fort Worth while also exposing a new group of hockey fans to these games,” said Mike Barack, President of the Brahmas.
The Brahmas began playing in Fort Worth in 1997 as a part of the Western Professional Hockey League. The team left Fort Worth in 2006 and re-established the franchise in North Richland Hills before the 2007-08 season, changing its name to the Texas Brahmas.
Hockey in Fort Worth dates back to the 1940s and includes such names as the Wings, Rangers, Texans, Fire (ironically) and Brahmas.
The franchise has planned several promotions, including a chance to bid on jerseys worn by the players (after every game) and a giveaway of 500 Brahmas caps.
