The USFL’s kicks off April 16 as next wave of spring football makes an attempt at survival

The United States Football League returns to life on April 16. The league, which originally ran from 1982 to 1986, will give football fans the chance to watch spring gridiron action once again. In recent years, springtime football has been the aim of a few leagues. Yet, like the original USFL, the leagues went out of business.

The AAF and the XFL both tried to provide fans with springtime football. Rather than act as a competitor to the NFL, the AAF and XFL didn’t attempted to live within the same realm and tried to produce potential NFL players. Start-up costs and ongoing financial matters doomed both leagues. In the case of the AAF, it didn’t last the entire season before going bust. Football fans are debating which of the USFL’s eight teams will win the league’s 2022 title.

So, how will the USFL be different? For starters the league is set to play all games in 2022 in Birmingham, Alabama. Rather than playing games in the cities in which the teams represent, the USFL’s team will be sequestered in Birmingham with Protective Stadium and Legion Field being used.

The new USFL is attempting to separate itself from the established NFL with a few rule tweaks. These rule tweaks will give fans something new, but like the AAF and XFL, traditional football fans many not be accepting of these differences.

Some of the most interesting rule changes for the new USFL will be a three-point conversion after a touchdown, two forward passes from behind the line of scrimmage will be legal, and the clock will stop after first downs are achieved following the two-minute warning. These rules are just an example of several changes to “traditional” football rules.

The USFL’s rules provide fans with something very different than either the NFL or NCAA football. One of the most difficult aspects that the USFL has in attracting fans, other than the quality of the product, is the rules. It can be very difficult to get fans to understand the new rules.

While the AAF and XFL closed their doors early on, the USFL may have the money to last – at least for more than a season. Sports giant, Fox Sports is the owner the USFL. The mega company has committed up to $200 million for the next three years to operate the football league. In addition, Fox Sports plans to attract investors to the tune of an additional $250m.

One of the immediate issues that the USFL will have is getting fans to the game. While all games will be televised allowing people to watch, it will be difficult to attract fans due to all games being played in Birmingham. The good news for the USFL is that regulated betting on games has been approved by multiple states in America. The popularity of betting on the league’s games could be a big reason it stays alive.
