XFL, USFL Heading Toward Merger Agreement, per Reports
DANIEL CHAVKIN SEP 19, 2023
The USFL and XFL are in talks to merge together as one, creating a single secondary spring football league, Axios first reported on Tuesday. The two leagues are expected to combine ahead of the 2024 spring season.
Between the 16 current teams in either league, the two sides only have one overlapping city as each has a team in Houston. The new league will also have to work through TV deals, as Fox and NBC broadcasted USFL games while ESPN had XFL broadcasts.
