The XFL and USFL are merging to launch the United Football League, which officials touted as the “premier spring football league.”

The 2024 season for the UFL is set to kick off on Saturday, March 30, 2024. Russ Brandon, former President and CEO of the XFL, will lead the UFL as President and CEO. Former USFL President of Football Operations Daryl Johnston will lead football operations.

Dany Garcia, founder, CEO and chairwoman of The Garcia Companies, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, founder and CEO of the Seven Bucks Companies, formally announced the news on FOX NFL Sunday. Additional details about team markets and football operations will be announced soon.

“From day one, our mission has been to expand the game of football and be a league of opportunity, culture and innovation,” Johnson said in an announcement. “As we come together to create the UFL, we can build something powerful, exciting and very cool for football fans – a spring league with lasting impact for all the players with a dream to play pro football and the ‘hardest workers in the room’ mentality to make their dreams come true.”
