Foxsports.com released What You Need To Know: The New United States Football League On Fox. A breakdown of what fans can expect from the USFL 2022 season. A lot of which we have covered already on the site.
“There will be eight teams in the new USFL, split into two divisions –– North and South. Each team will play a 10-game schedule, with teams in the same division playing each other twice and teams in the other division once. “
The location for the games was not part of the announcement, but we know Birmingham will be the location. All USFL games will be played in a hub city for the 2022 season.
“The 2022 USFL regular season will begin in mid-April and run through mid-June, followed by the playoffs.”
We are hearing a Friday, April 15th kick-off.
Something new we have learned is that USFL games will be played on Saturdays and Sundays just like the XFL did; however, there could be some “special broadcasts on specific Fridays and Mondays. “
“We are extremely fortunate to have this extraordinary team of experienced executives to guide the new USFL’s development as we move toward launch this spring,” said FOX Sports CEO and Executive Producer Eric Shanks, who will serve as Chairman of the USFL’s Board of Directors.
Fox Sports controls the new USFL through a new business entity called NSFL HoldCo, LLC.
