Spring football will make its long-awaited return when the United States Football League (USFL) takes the field on Saturday, April 16, 2022. The 8-team league will play 43 games this season and it’s not affiliated with the 1985 league of the same name; however, the 2022 league owns the trademarks and team names from the previous league.
Teams & Divisions
Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Alabama will be the home of every single regular game during the league’s inaugural season. The 2022 USFL Playoffs will take place at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. One of the 8 teams in the following chart will look to be the last team standing at the end of the season and earn the right to call themselves 2022 USFL champions.
|New Orleans Breakers
|Tampa Bay Bandits
|New Jersey Generals
To differentiate itself from the NFL, innovation will be a key principle of the upstart league, which will give fans more access to enjoy the action on the gridiron like never before. Some highlights of the USFL’s innovation initiative include the following:
- Locker room coverage during halftime
- Two Skycams
- 16 players mic’d up for every game
- Drone coverage
- New First Down Technology (No more Chain Gangs)
- Two players from each team will be wearing helmet cams in every game
