DECATUR - Tryouts are now being held for the Illinois Thundercats, an eight-man semi-pro football team.
The Thundercats belong to a league called the CI8FL, or the Central Illinois 8-man football league.
The team plays a faster-paced style football on a shorter field, similar to arena football.
The Thundercats are holding three tryouts in October. The first tryout will be held Saturday October 5, 2:00 PM, at Fairview Park.
You must be 18 or older to try out. You're encouraged to bring your pads and cleats.
