ARLINGTON, TX — January 1, 2024 — The United Football League, the premier spring football league, today announced the eight teams competing in its inaugural season kicking off on March 30, 2024. The League will be divided into two conferences: USFL and XFL.

  • Houston Roughnecks
  • Memphis Showboats
  • Michigan Panthers

XFL Conference​

  • Arlington Renegades

Houston was the one overlapping market between the XFL and USFL and it was one of the strongest markets for both leagues. As a result, the USFL's Houston Gamblers have been rebranded as the Houston Roughnecks.

The UFL's 10-game regular season will start on Saturday, March 30, 2024, with a battle of the 2023 champions: Birmingham Stallions (USFL) vs Arlington Renegades (XFL). Players will report to training camp on Saturday, February 24, 2024, in Arlington, Texas.

The UFL's Head Coaches include returning names from both the XFL and USFL. Collectively, they bring decades of coaching and playing experience, a passion for the game and a commitment to expanding opportunities for players.

  • Skip Holtz (Stallions)
  • Curtis Johnson (Roughnecks)
  • John DeFilippo (Showboats)
  • Mike Nolan (Panthers)

Were there any overlapping cities between the two leagues?

Houston sort of. They officially kept the Gamblers but then changed their nickname and all to the Roughnecks. It was kind of weird.
