FOX Sports is synonymous with football. For over 28 years, it has given fans the biggest games, the best matchups and some of the NFL’s most iconic moments. In 2022, FOX Sports took things to a higher level through the ownership, coverage and launch of the new United States Football League (USFL).

From mid-April to mid-June, eight teams competed in a 10-week regular season in Birmingham, Alabama. Postseason games, including the semifinals on June 25th and the league championship game on July 3rd, took place in the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

FOX Sports and NBC Sports, the League’s official media partners, presented all 43 games live in the inaugural season. There were 18 primetime broadcasts, including the USFL Championship Game on FOX.
