Details On The USFL And XFL Intended Merger
The USFL and XFL have announced an intention to merge.
“Today, the United States Football League (‘USFL’) and the XFL announced their intention to merge,” the leagues said in a joint release. “Subject to customary regulatory approvals and if the transaction is consummated, the new league will establish best-in-class operations based on the most recent seasons of both leagues. This historic combination will anchor professional spring football with substantial capabilities and resources to ensure future growth and continue to enhance the development of the collective players, coaches, and staff that are coming together.
“More details regarding the new league will be announced at a later date.”
Some of the biggest details that are yet to be released are: who will own the league, how many teams / games will there be, along with how they will be televised? Most importantly, what will the league be called?
Of course though we will find out the details at a later date, but September 28th, will go down as a historic day in the football community.
This new alternate football league, despite it being its own pro league, could very well be the NFL's unofficial minor league system when it comes to signing players.
