USFL Unveils Uniforms For Inaugural 2022 Season

Videos by OutKick

Ladies and gentlemen, we have uniforms. The USFL announced Thursday that they would be unveiling uniforms for all eight teams, releasing them every hour throughout the day.

The Birmingham Stallions, who will play in the first game of the season against the New Jersey Generals on Saturday, April 16 at 7:30 ET at Protective Stadium on FOX and NBC, were the first team to reveal their uniform set.

Led by head coach Skip Holtz, the Stallions are rolling with a traditional design and a red, gold and white color scheme.

The Pittsburgh Maulers revealed their uniforms, opting for a blue, orange and white set. The Maulers will be coached by Kirby Wilson, who has been a running backs coach in the NFL since 2002.

Next up to reveal is the Tampa Bay Bandits, perhaps the most successful team to not win the USFL championship during the league’s original launch. The Bandits will be coached by Todd Haley, best known for his time as Chiefs head coach from 2009-11 and Steelers offensive coordinator from 2012-17.

Like the Bandits, the Houston Gamblers are sticking with a set very similar to the ones they wore in the ’80s. The Gamblers enter 2022 under head coach Kevin Sumlin, known for his time as Texas A&M head coach from 2012-17.

The New Jersey Generals, perhaps the USFL’s most infamous franchise, is back and going with a simple red and white color scheme. Mike Riley will coach the Generals, the former Chargers (1999-2001) and Nebraska (2015-17) head coach.

The Michigan Panthers take the prize for having the most unique look, with a plum, blue and gold color scheme that pops. The Panthers will be coached by the league’s most decorated coach, former Titans (1994-2010) and Rams (2012-16) head coach Jeff Fisher.

“So fresh and so clean,” the New Orleans Breakers declared as they revealed their uniform set. Featuring a wave on the sleeves, New Orleans debuts a very vibrant “Breaker Blue” and royal blue. Former North Carolina (2012-18) head coach Larry Fedora will run the ship in the Bayou.

The Philadelphia Stars will do battle every week in crimson and gold, going with their star logo on the front of the jersey, rather than on the sleeves. The Stars will be coached by Bart Andrus, the longtime NFL Europe, CFL and UFL head coach.

  1. As for me, I see some potential here…

    I live 3 hours from Birmingham and I’m already planing to see at least ONE game… WHY NOT? It’s football. I HATE the NFL, so ANY alternative is worth supporting. Hopefully, this will have a WWE/F feel to it. Maybe it won’t have a “woke” feel to it… we shall see.

    The ALABAMA/Louisiana/Florida/Texas combo is rather interesting.. if they can “draft” old heroes of BAMA/Agburn, LSU, UF/FSU, and TX/A&M to the respective teams, you could see some sparks of interest… the Birmingham vs. New Orleans rivalry is gonna be a given — if the producers can hype it right, this could work!
