A new football league is coming to Casa Grande Arizona called United Football League. Hundreds of professional football players will descend on Casa Grande September 13, 2009 to begin pre-season training for a new football league.
This new football league is scheduled to kick off its inaugural season in October. Two of the league’s teams will spend three months in Casa Grande. This will bring new revenue to the area. The area is expecting to benefit from $2 million in local spending related to the California Redwoods and Las Vegas Locomotives.
More than 60 players on each team will be based in Casa Grande through November, when the season will culminate with a championship game Thanksgiving weekend.
The UFL also includes the Florida Tuskers and the New York Sentinels.
If you are a sports fan this should be an exciting new addition to Arizona sports.
