The Wisconsin Wolfpack, an indoor football team based in Madison, is back for a second season but with a new home field.

The Wolfpack opens its 2010 campaign Saturday at Hartmeyer Arena against the Miami Valley Silverbacks (0-1), which are based on Ohio. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

The team, a member of the Continental Indoor Football League, played its games last year at the Alliant Energy Center Coliseum.

General admission tickets are $10, discounted to $6 for college students with student ID. Field-level tickets in the "In the Game" section are $15, while seating in the Wolf Den -- an all-inclusive food and drink area in the north end zone -- costs $30.

The Wolfpack also offers a family section where no alcohol will be permitted.

Several former Badgers are on the roster, including Andy Crooks, who transitioned from linebacker to tight end during his career and served as captain of the 2007 team.

The Wolfpack went 7-5 in its inaugural season, qualifying for the playoffs, where it lost in the first round to the eventual champions, the Chicago Slaughter.

The Slaughter is not fielding a team in 2010. The six-team CIFL includes teams from three other states: Ohio (Marion Mayhem, Miami Valley Silverbacks, Cincinnati Commandos), Indiana (Fort Wayne Firehawks) and Illinois (Chicago Cardinals).
