UFL set to kick off its inaugural championship game. Let the festivities begin!


St. Louis, MO (June 14, 2024) – The United Football League will host its inaugural championship this Sunday, June 16, at 4 p.m. CT inside The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO, where the Birmingham Stallions will face off against the San Antonio Brahmas.

This game represents the finale of the United Football League’s 2024 campaign, which resulted in the merger between the XFL and USFL. To say it is historic is an understatement. Fans will witness the first championship game of a sports league that may be with us for a long time.

To get to this game, last week the Birmingham Stallions defeated the Michigan Panthers 31-18, while the San Antonio Brahmas defeated the St. Louis Battlehawks 25-15. This will be the second game between the two franchises, with the Brahmas handing the Stallions their only loss of the season back in Week 9 with a score of 18-9.

The game has been placed in St. Louis as a reward to their fans who have supported their home team, the St. Louis Battlehawks, in such an enormous fashion, coming out to the game in droves and setting attendance records. Hopefully, Battlehawks fans are not completely disappointed by their home team not making it into the title game and will make an effort to show up for this game just to show the world they are still leaders when it comes to fan support.

Local UFL fans will not only have the opportunity to witness a historic football game, as it is the inaugural match, but they may also witness Birmingham’s unprecedented three-peat of championship titles. The last franchise to win three straight titles in the NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL was when the Los Angeles Lakers accomplished the feat 22 years ago, in 2002.

For those who can’t be at the game, it will be televised on FOX. Play-by-play analyst Curt Menafee will be in the booth, along with Joel Klatt. Devin Gardner will join them on the sidelines, capturing all the action from the field.

At this year’s game, St. Louis’ very own Charles Glenn will sing the anthem, with representatives from the U.S. Army presenting the nation’s colors. The entertainment will continue at halftime, with a special performance by the UFL’s very own All-UFL Punter, Marquette King of the Arlington Renegades.

Prior to the game, the league will host a fan fest from 12 to 4 p.m. CT at Baer Plaza for all those attending. There will be a DJ on site, with lots of booth activities, including the impossible kick, sponsored by the U.S. Army.

Tickets are available online at Ticketmaster and Stubhub.
