Consisting of sixteen articles, the Constitution of the United States Football League was
adopted by its member clubs in 1982 and served as the league's
chief governing instrument during its playing history.
Following the 1985 season, Commissioner Harry Usher persuaded
the remaining owners of teams to form "United States
Football League, Inc.," a Delaware non-profit corporation
(whose governing instruments are also among the USFL.INFO
Exclusives), and the organization governed by this constitution
- an unincorporated association - was merged into it.
"USFL, Inc." would never play a game, however, as the
outcome of USFL v.
NFL sealed its fate.
