This is the latest regarding the status of the USFL:
The New USFL Fantasy Football League has begun!
Help is needed with the team names and logos. More details inside.
The New USFL was founded in 2009 by Southern California businessman Michael Dwyer. But after three years of inactivity and failed efforts to launch the league, the league was purchased by EndZone Sports Management and was headquartered in San Diego.
The league expected to field eight teams and play a 14-game regular season from March to June with a four-team playoff system and championship starting in the spring of 2014. However, plans were delayed after former President and CEO Jaime Cuadra resigned from his league duties in February and, on June 24, 2013, pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $1 million from two San Diego companies and using the money to fund the league.
New CEO Jim Bailey posted an official statement from the league on their new website the following day, stating "We have been working to put the past behind us as we continue to establish this league, which we remain confident will be successful. We are moving forward diligently and confidently toward spring football by focusing on the future rather than the past."
When the league launches, it will still field eight teams and play a 14-game regular season, starting in mid-March and culminating with a championship game in mid-July prior to the start of NFL training camps. NFL rules will be used, but the league may experiment with changes to improve the league.
