Pittsburgh Maulers Unveil New Helmets, USFL TV Schedule
The Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL may be playing in Canton, Ohio this season, but they’re continuing to do everything possible to look like they belong in the Steel City.
Monday, the Maulers released a video with their new-for-2023 helmets that look a whole lot like the ones the Pittsburgh Steelers wear. The Maulers will sport black helmet shells with a single gold stripe. The team’s maul-swinging steelworker logo will appear on both sides of the helmet, unlike the NFL team’s steel mark-inspired logo, which is only on one side.
Doesn't get much better than helmets in black & gold 😍⚫️🟡

The full uniform is expected to be released soon. The Maulers returned to the reborn USFL in 2022, after having played just one season in the original league in 1984. The 1984 and 2022 teams wore purple and orange as primary colors, but the new club made the change to fit in with the rest of the sports teams that call themselves Pittsburgh for this season.
The league had all of its teams in a central location in 2022. This year, eight clubs are playing in four hubs in Canton, Detroit, Birmingham and Memphis. The league eventually hopes to place all eight teams in their respective cities.
While Pittsburgh fans will have to make the two-hour drive to Canton’s Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium if they want to see the Maulers play in person this season, they can catch the games on television. The league’s 10-game season will be broadcast nationally, split between FOX/FS1 and NBC/USA/Peacock.
