UPDATE (July 14, 2022): I'm excited to unveil this opportunity to preserve the entire video library of the USFL. These videotapes were the league's archive until being turned over to Halcyon Days Productions in 1985. An estimated 400+ games remain preserved on tape. The videotapes won't last indefinitely, however, and the footage must be converted to a digital format to be preserved and accessed. How can you help? Check out the USFL Video Library Preservation GoFundMe campaign. Please contact me, Paul Reeths, with any questions.

Check out the searchable USFL stats from the Stats Crew.

Order the book, The United States Football League, 1982–1986.

USFL Stadia


The United States Football League planned to place its teams in modern, major league facilities, and for the most part, it succeeded. It shared 13 venues which served as hosts to National Football League franchises at one time, and with few exceptions played in the best facilities available in each city. Other fields, such as Orlando's Citrus Bowl, Jacksonville's Gator Bowl and Portland's Civic Stadium, had housed other professional football teams.

There were a few exceptions. In the inaugural season, only Boston, playing at tiny Nickerson Field, played in a less than ideal facility, after being rebuffed in attempts to land elsewhere in the city. By 1984, San Antonio started play in substandard Alamo Stadium, owned by the local school district, and Oklahoma had to utilize a college facility after the team couldn't land in San Diego. In the final season, Baltimore played at another college field, Byrd Stadium, while waiting for the final vestiges of the Colts lease to expire at Memorial Stadium.
