Usfl Season Opener To Be Simulcast On Fox And NBC In Rare Double-Team
The season opener of the new United States Football League on Saturday, April 16 will be simulcast on NBC and Fox, the networks said Tuesday, a rare occurrence in the world of sports TV.

The eight-team spring pro league’s inaugural game will pit the New Jersey Generals against the Birmingham Stallions, with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. Et at Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Al, where all the league’s games will be played, the league said today. NBC Sports will handle pregame, halftime, and postgame coverage while Fox Sports will produce the in-game coverage. All will be carried by both networks, and the same ads will run during the telecast on both outlets.
