Going into this year it was expected that we’d hear a lot from the USFL, we’re not even two months in and they’ve been dropping news left and right. We’ve learned all eight team names/logos, head coaches, player/staff incentives, broadcast partners… and that’s just a handful of what the USFL has revealed this year alone.
Just earlier today, the league announced that they will be hosting their playoffs and championship game at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, OH. Which if you didn’t know is the birthplace of professional football. Additionally, the venue is home to the NFL’s Hall of Fame game and ceremony. Starting out the season the league is making history with a simulcast between FOX and NBC, and ending it out they’re playing where history was made.
Next week the USFL is holding their inaugural draft, but they aren’t holding back. Just now, they announced on social media that tomorrow all eight team uniforms will be unveiled.
This is definitely something fans have been asking for, and with the promise of new merchandise we can only hope they’ll be available for purchase soon. In fact, shortly after the news came out, the USFL Shop went online. Naturally, this has led to speculation that those merch drops are coming sooner rather than later.
Shortly after the main USFL account posted the news, some of the team accounts started putting out their own teasers.
At the moment, it doesn’t mention when the jerseys will drop, or if they’ll all be at the same time. We assume that we’ll see the reveals sprinkled throughout the day. Needless to say, we’ll be covering the drops as they come through.
UPDATE: Earlier this morning, the USFL let everyone know the schedule and order that each team would be revealed today. Starting at 8am ET, the league will be releasing one team uniform per hour until all eight have been unveiled. We will be updating the list below as they come through.
