The UFL is struggling and has postponed the second half of its season until the spring.

The United Football League teams are in Omaha, Nebraska; Sacramento, California; Las Vegas, Nevada and Norfolk, Virginia.

The league plans on returning to a fall schedule in 2013.

As of this past week, coaches and players have not been paid. Players earn $3,500 a game.

The UFL said that its priority is to pay coaches, players and support staff. The league did not have enough money to cover workmen’s compensation insurance and other bills.

League founder and chairman William Hambrecht said that each team has played four of the eight regularly-scheduled games. The remaining games and the championship game will be played in the spring.

The league was founded in 2007 and its inaugural season was 2009.
