Last week reported on the USFL trademarks that were registered and active, to see if that could give us a hint at which teams we may see return next year. Additionally, it may also help us figure where the teams may be located as well.
Since we originally touched on the subject, the number of trademarks has jumped to 98 in total. Some are new teams, and others are variations on the existing trademarks we already saw.
San Antonio Gunslingers
If I were a gabling man, I would have to say that the league may be interested in Austin, TX. We also had the league register some base identities with no cities associated. All of which existed in the USFL’s original run.
Again, this does not mean that any of these teams are guaranteed to return. But, we can assume that some will make it to the USFL next year with the league targeting a minimum of eight teams to start.
The trademarks above are in addition to those that we reported on last week.
Los Angeles Express
New Orleans Breakers
New Jersey Generals
Saint Louis Invaders
Tampa Bay Bandits
There’s still no official word on what will happen to The Spring League when the USFL returns next year, but it seems likely that they will go back to running as a camp. Ultimately, it puts the new USFL is in a great position to hit the field with an official development league in place.
