4/8 USFL teams announced?

Post by herns »

On their website they’ve added merch for the Birmingham stallions, Pittsburg maulers, Philadelphia stars, and New Orleans breakers. They’ve also filed for merch patents on the St. Louis invaders

Looks like a "teaser" - a way to create low level buzz prior to more news leaks followed by the BIG Announcement!

We don't know that, it could be a tease to generate interest on what teams there may be. I would be surprised if a NY/NJ team weren't in the mix and philly is large top 5 TV market too.

NY Nielsen market alone is 6.5% of the country, Philly roughly 2.5% and Pitt 1%. New Orleans is a small market(about .55%) and Birmingham .6%.

The one thing Pennsylvania has over NY/NJ is its move like a Red state when it comes to regs, cost and taxes so I could see Philly get a team. ( The MLS Philly stadium is actually not in the city limits - philly is a bad city for biz).

I do think Birmingham get a team as the Southern Team in a city that should get good attendance for the USFL and as a bone to get the hub contract in 2022. New Orleans has the benefit of no MLB or NHL team, but its a smaller TV market.

I just think they are doing this to start low level buzz... we'll see where it goes. They may put up 15 teams.

Your statistics just made it make a whole lot of sense for me if those are the teams. I hope they go with 8 teams like the proposed plan to Birmingham called for but cap out at 10 for season 1

I only meant they may add 15 teams to the USFL merchanise site to generate buzz on which cities make the 8 city cut.

There will only be 8 team in 2022 - that's been stated in multiple reports the past week and meshes with the June original announcement.

I don't see them expanding beyond 8 teams (4 games a week) untill they have the TV interest in televising/streaming more games OR when/if they can franchise a team for big $$$ like MLS (though that looks more like a ponzi scheme).

I think the TV interest will be there year 1 to justify expanding to like 10. Gotta get the team owners I’m like though as well which seems like one of the more difficult steps
