The USFL is back. The New Jersey generals too. But not Donald Trump.
The league announced its stimulus package on Monday which involves eight teams playing a 12-week schedule starting in April.
Yes, were talking about THIS USFL. The one who went bankrupt over 35 years ago.
And just like last time around, the league will include the New Jersey Generals.
According to FOX Sports, the league will be split into two divisions.
In the North, the USFL will have the Michigan Panthers, New Jersey Generals, Philadelphia Stars and Pittsburgh Maulers.
The Birmingham Stallions, Houston Gamblers, New Orleans Breakers and Tampa Bay Bandits will make up the South Division.
We were excited to take this next major step in the development of a new USFL, said Brian Woods, president of USFL football operations in a statement. These eight teams form the core of our initial league roster and will represent an exciting brand of professional football coming this spring. We look forward to the start of our inaugural season.
The New Jersey Generals were part of the original USFL, with Trump purchasing the franchise after the 1983 season.
Playing at Giants Stadium, the Generals were one of the flagship teams in the USFL, thanks to stars like Trophy winners Heisman Herschel Walker and Doug Flutie.
However, the league closed in 1986, doomed by its attempt to challenge the NFL one-on-one by moving its games from spring to fall. The league has turned to the courts for protection, but the failure of its antitrust lawsuit spelled the end of the football startup.
Here’s what you need to know about the second generation USFL, according to FOX Sports:
– The 2022 season will be played in a host city, which has yet to be announced. Going forward, the USFL expects teams to play in their own markets.
– Teams will play a 10-game schedule, followed by two playoff rounds.
– The 2022 season will start in mid-April and run until mid-June.
– The matches will be played on Saturday and Sunday, with special broadcasts on certain Fridays and Mondays.
– FOX Sports is an official broadcast partner of the USFL and will broadcast matches weekly.
–NFL veterans will lead the league, with former Dallas Cowboysfullback Daryl Johnston the executive vice president of football operations. Former NFL vice president of refereeing and current FOX Sports analyst Mike Pereira will head refereeing for the USFL.
