Last week Fox Sports announced that the USFL will make its return, and now we know that the Michigan Panthers will be apart of it…

The USFL was created in 1983 and only lasted three years, but now it is making a return and thankfully the first champions the Michigan Panthers will be involved.

The new version of the league will feature eight teams split into two divisions –– North and South.

Each team will play a 10-game schedule, with teams in the same division playing each other twice and teams in the other division once.

The Panthers were one of eight teams that unveiled a logo and colors on Monday. They will sport the same colors worn by the original Panthers.
All eight teams will play in one location, which will be announced soon. In the future, the USFL expects teams to play in their own markets.
The season will start in mid-April and run through mid-June, followed by the playoffs.
