The USFL & XFL kicked of the new year officially announcing the formation of the United Football League (UFL). The news came after many months of negotiations when the two revealed that they intended to merge for the 2024 season. Since the completion of the dispersal draft, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the UFL schedule..
One of the items holding it up was the pending deal with Rice Stadium to become the new home of the Houston Roughnecks. Rice Stadium was finally named the home of the Roughnecks this morning, clearing the path for more announcements.
Earlier this week the Michigan Panthers and Birmingham Stallions announced town hall events for Feb 9 & 10th. Naturally, this led to speculations that the UFL schedules were around the corner.
Good news, the speculation ends now. The St. Louis Battlehawks released a teaser officially announcing February 5th as the date the UFL schedules will be released.
Shortly after, the floodgates opened and the rest of the UFL teams posted their own UFL Schedule announcements.
Many UFL locations had already been selling tickets, but due to the stadium situation in Houston things have been on hold. Now that Rice Stadium has been finalized tickets are set to go on sale for season ticket holders this Monday. Public ticket sales will follow shortly after on February 12th.
Training camp is less than a month away and we’re just shy of two months from kickoff. Only one matchup has been publicly announced: the Birmingham Stallions will travel to Arlington to take on the Renegades in the opener. It’s going to hard to top the two Champions going head to head. But this season has the top talent from both leagues, so it will be fun to watch. Luckily, we don’t have to wait much longer to see the rest of the 2024 UFL season schedule.
