SAN DIEGO (AP) - The United States Football League says it will kick off its inaugural season in the spring of 2014.
The original USFL played from 1983-87, then went out of business after winning a lawsuit against the NFL and collecting only $3.
When the reformation of the league was announced earlier this year, organizers targeted playing next March. Now, that date has been pushed back a year.
Plans are for a 14-game season played by eight franchises, none of which has been identified yet.
All players and coaches contracts will be owned by the USFL, and each team owner will be a member-operator of the league.
