SALT LAKE CITY – The 2022 USFL season is almost here and multiple players with ties to the state of Utah will play in the rebooted football league.

The USFL was first created in 1982. The league played games for three seasons from 1983-85. In 1986, the USFL ceased its operations.

In June 2021, the USFL was revived and confirmed plans to play in the spring of 2022.

The opening weekend of games will be played at Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Alabama.

Here are the local players from the USFL’s eight teams and how you can watch them in week one of the 2022 season:
