USFLPA Issues Statement on USFL/XFL Merger Approval

Earlier today it was reported that the USFL and XFL had completed the antitrust review process in connection with the proposed merger.

Since then, the league has put out an official statement making the news official. It was also revealed that the new combined league would be targeting a March 30th, 2024 kickoff. The statement ends by letting fans know that further details will be shared in the coming weeks.

Now that the news is official, the USFLPA has put out a statement of their own.

Although things are still in motion for the new combined league, the USFLPA is still very interested to keep a working relationship that benefits both the league and the players it represents.

There’s a lot of rumors out there on what the league could be named and what teams/locations could be included. But, it’s important to remember that nothing is final or official until it comes from the league.

Now that the regulatory rock is out of the way, the two groups will work towards an official announcement with more details. We expect that all of these details and more could come before the end of the year.

We’ll keep you updated as more information comes out in regards to the merger between the USFL and XFL.
