SBD/20/Leagues Governing Bodies

ANOTHER LEAGUE TO TAKE A RUN AT SPRING FOOTBALL

     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).
