“The USFL is excited that the Pittsburgh Maulers and the New Jersey Generals will practice and play games in Canton during the 2023 regular season,” Daryl Johnston, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, said in a release earlier this month. “The outstanding regional support we received during our first postseason from football fans in Ohio and Pennsylvania, including the great city of Pittsburgh, coupled with our successful partnership with the Hall of Fame Village, led to this moment.”
The USFL, which had its inaugural season last year, is the first major professional spring football league to have a second season in nearly 40 years.
