With the National Football League trying to end its lockout and get training camps and preseason games underway, the United Football League has announced that it will be pushing back the start of its season from August to September.

The schedule switch does not help the UFL which has lost more than $100 million in the first two years of its existence.

The UFL has teams in Omaha, Hartford, Norfolk, Las Vegas and Sacramento.

The league had hoped to gain viewers and fans during the NFL lockout, by scheduling early-season games on Sundays.
