What Is The USFL?


The worst time of the year for a lot of people is from mid-February to September when the NFL offseason occurs. NFL fans are always hungry for new football content. This is where the USFL(United States Football League) comes in.

The USFL runs from the middle of April to the middle of June. A 2 month season doesn’t seem like much but it’s a lot better than nothing. The USFL is split into 2 divisions, the North and the South. Each division has 4 teams.

Instead of every team having their own arena, every regular season game is being played in Birmingham, Alabama. Games can be played in either Protective Stadium or Legion Field. Post season games will be held at Tom Benson Hall in Canton, Ohio.

Obviously hate is expected but I feel like people are over-hating the USFL. This is a new opportunity for overlooked players to get another chance to play the sport they love. We need to all take a step back and realize that these players are fighting for an opportunity to get back into the NFL. We should give the USFL some time to grow before we start hating.

I personally like the USFL. I hope more people start to like it too. It’s no NFL but it’s so much better than no football.
