Fox Sports Dropping Major USFL Announcement Today On The Herd, Team Names & Cities

Last night the USFL drop this tease on social media during NFL games. The league plans on making a major announcement on todays “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd on FS1 form 12p – 3 p ET.

What we could be getting is the official team names and cities of the USFL. The league has updated some of its trademarks, including a logo for the Philadelphia Stars.

USFL News on Twitter noticed some teams had new accounts created on Instagram and Twitter. 8 team accounts to be exact.

  • Birmingham Stallions
  • Houston Gamblers
  • Michigan Panthers
  • New Orleans Breakers
  • New Jersey Generals
  • Philadelphia Stars
  • Pittsburgh Maulers
  • Tampa Bay Bandits

Could these be the teams coming to the USFL in 2022? We will all be watching ‘The Herd’ to find out.

The XFL has teams Tampa Bay and Houston. Could this mean the Vipers are moving to Orlando and the Roughnecks are moving to San Antonio?

USFL is excepted to kick off on Friday April 15th, 2022. Follow all the USFL news on XFL News Hub as we cover the league in 2022.

    Mark,

    Those markets make up 16+% of the neilsen TV households. A bit short of my own guess of 17-20% they’d target but not by much.
    For perspective AAF was just 9+% and XFL 2.0 was 22+%. Its only geographically Midwest/South Central to East Coast also.

    Could see USFL expand west in 2023/24 (even with XFL?).

    Big news on The Herd today I hope.

    Great to hear all the throw back names and logos. The Breakers return to play for their 2nd home city (1984 season), in New Orleans, after moving from Boston (’83) and before ending in Portland (’85). Pittsburgh Maulers and Houston Gamblers only non-original 12 USFL teams (1984 expansion cities).

    A little surprised they didn’t bring back the Chicago Blitz for the market reach.
    Same thoughts on the Denver Gold. Strong attendance figures in the past.
    Non surprised Oakland was left off the list.

    I will be rooting for my original favorite USFL team, the Philadelphia Stars (in all three championship games) .

    As a teenager, I followed the ’80s USFL as much as you could form a non-USFL city. I have a self-made scrapbook from all the news and game box scores published in our local newspaper, at the time.

    Quick fact. The NJ Generals, NY Yankees and the NY Mets all had home games on the same day (1983, I believe) and the Generals had the largest crowd of the three games.

    Keep up the great work Mark!!
