The National Gridiron League Has Postponed Its Inaugural Season

The National Gridiron League and President Joe E. McClendon, III have announced an adjustment to the league's regular season schedule. The change, effective immediately, includes all NGL team schedules.

With the recommendation of industry experts, the league's start date has been postponed in favor of continuing promotional efforts in preparation of the its inaugural season.

“Every market deserves the opportunity to properly promote to allow each market the best opportunity for success,” said McClendon. “We have worked extremely hard to secure the right markets and venues for our league and to launch twelve expansion franchises at once takes a tremendous effort. 

"We felt it would be in the best interest of our teams, fans, and venues if we do not rush our kickoff and take some additional time to ensure a fantastic first experience. A great fan experience will forever be our standard moving forward.”

According to the NGL, McClendon will further explain the decision in an upcoming interview.

As for when, exactly, we can expect to see games being played, the NGL schedule has been updated to reflect a new start date of May 4.
