With just days until the inaugural 2022 United States Football League season kicks off, the time has come to introduce the mascots. But there is one thing missing … they still need names.
Each team revealed its mascot on social media on Monday, and while they look great, each team is asking fans to take part in naming the new member of the club.
Here are the mascots for all eight USFL teams:
“Full Steed Ahead, our mascot is here,” the team tweeted.
The Gamblers are all-in on their new mascot, but he still needs a name.
“Calvin Ridley,” one user wrote.
“The Hunt is over,” the Panthers tweeted. “We’ve got our official mascot!”
While the team is still asking for name suggestions, the most liked name at the time of publication is a tweet naming the mascot, “Shea Pantherson.”
New Jersey Generals
The Generals have their new mascot, but he still needs a name.
New Orleans Breakers
“BREAKING: Our new official mascot is here!” the team tweeted.
One individual thinks the new mascot should be named “Tchoupy.”
The Stars are asking for help naming the “USFL’s clear best mascot” and one individual took the time to think of a few options in the replies.
“I love him,” the Twitter user wrote. “Ok here goes: Burpy, Moogy, Octophreak, Lumpy, Yamichan (fake mascot from the sims), Comet, Pasha, … Bumpy, Plucky (synonym for gritty), Deborah.”
“Nailed it. Just DROPPED our official mascot,” the team tweeted. “Give us your best name suggestion below!”
Tampa Bay Bandits
“Stick ’em up!”
The Bandits have their new mascot and, just like the other teams, they want fans to help name him.
One clever name in the replies is the “Bayside Bandit.”
If you have any suggestions for the teams, reply to the specific team’s tweet of the mascot to make your suggestions! Here’s a look at all of them:
