USFL – United States Football League Is Back Spring 2013

THE USFL ROLLS OUT PLANS FOR 2013; EIGHT TEAMS TARGETED TO PLAY

JIM STEEG & TERRELL JONES NAMED TO ADVISORY BOARD

 San Diego CA (February 27, 2012)—The United States Football League (USFL) is planning to field eight teams in targeted United States markets for its inaugural season in the Spring of 2013, it was announced today by USFL President Jaime Cuadra.

Cuadra also announced the appointments of former NFL executive Jim Steeg and sports consultant Terrell Jones to the USFL Board of Advisors.

The USFL will provide players not drafted by the NFL or that have been released from NFL teams an opportunity to play high caliber professional outdoor football beginning in March of 2013 and concluding with the championship game in June.

“Our vision is to create a league that allows highly skilled athletes in need of either skill refinement or exposure to make the jump to the next level,” said Cuadra. “The League will operate under what is referred to as a single entity structure. This structure has worked successfully for Major League Soccer (MLS) for nearly 20 years. Each team owner will be a member operator of the League.

“We are students of history. We will not compete with the NFL and our games will be played during their off-season. We are convinced that by heeding these lessons we can operate the League in a fiscally responsible manner while simultaneously bringing the fan a quality product. Moreover, we believe this approach will ensure the very sustainability of the League which is of the greatest importance to our fans and to our owners and investors.”
