D.C. Defenders unveil schedule for inaugural UFL season

XFL D.C. Defenders

With the UFL releasing their schedule today, we now know that fans of the D.C. Defenders will have to wait until April 7 at 4 p.m. for the home opener against the Houston Roughnecks at Audi Field.

The lemons will have to wait an extra week after the Defenders start their season on March 31 in San Antonio against the Brahmas.

The UFL splits teams into two conferences, the USFL and the XFL, named after their former leagues. After the regular season, the top four teams will advance to a semifinal playoff. The final championship game will take place on June 16.

ABC, ESPN, Fox, or their affiliate channels will stream UFL games. Games will also stream on ESPN+ and the Fox Sports app.

“Through the combined reach of our partners at Fox and ESPN — who both share a commitment to broadcast innovation — the UFL will now have exceptional platforms through which fans can experience spring football,” UFL President and CEO Russ Brandon said. “We are equally excited to welcome new and returning fans back into our buildings this season so they can immerse themselves in the energy around spring football. Our players are here to perform and to reach the next level and our fans are going to be treated to an excellent on-field product and in-stadium experience.”
