The Latest USFL Trademark News — Which Teams Could Return in 2022?

Potential News on USFL Tryouts for 2022 Season

Ever since it was announced that the USFL would be returning in 2022, many players have reached out to find out how they can tryout for the new league.

Well, we may be getting closer to finding out some information on that front.

@NewsUSFL on Twitter reports that prospective players were informers that a USFL combine is scheduled in California this January.

Additionally, it seems that a showcase event for skill players will take place Jan 8-9, with specialists trying out Jan 22-23 in Southern California.

There has also been rumors of a second combine in Atlanta, but we have not been able to substantiate that just yet. As of now, there’s nothing that leads us to believe that there is any substance behind that report. But… we’ll let you know if that changes.

These don’t seem to be open tryouts, it looks like the league is actively reaching out to players and agents to invite them to this event.

At the time of publication, it’s been said that the USFL is targeting March 1st to begin their training camp/pre-season. Although it hasn’t been confirmed by the league yet, all signs point to the USFL season taking place in Birmingham, AL next year. Looking at the discussions between the league and Birmingham, if all goes as planned in 2022 the city could host as many as four teams in 2023 as the league works towards moving all their teams to their respective cities.

We’ve heard a few mentions of the upcoming tryouts and draft, and generally where there’s smoke there’s fire.

We’ve also seen excitement from others in the lead-up to the relaunch of the USFL. Case in point, former Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly. Frankly, Kelly would be a perfect fit for the new league. Not only does he have prior NFL experience, he’s the nephew of former USFL standout Jim Kelly.

Last week we finally learned the eight USFL teams that would be returning, and with less than five months until kickoff we’re starting to see the news ramp up.

We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the upcoming USFL season and tryouts. Make sure to follow USFL Newsroom for all the latest updates as they come in.
