ANOTHER LEAGUE TO TAKE A RUN AT SPRING FOOTBALL
Published September 20, 1994
The United Football Association, started by former Army assistant coach Bob Darling, has awarded 17 franchises including Harrisburg, Norfolk, Akron, Indianapolis, Madison, Miami, Tampa/St. Pete, Laramie, WY, Lincoln, NE, and Spokane. The season would run from mid-May through July, and tickets will cost $15-35. Darling says the league is negotiating with prospective corporate sponsors and has discussed a TV contract. Franchises will be league-owned and Darling expects the UFA's chances to be better than the WFL and USFL. Darling: "We got rid of the millionaires" (Mike Bullock, Harrisburg PATRIOT NEWS, 9/18).
