2022 USFL playoffs

USFL officiating assignments for the 2022 Semifinal Playoffs

Two crews advanced to the USFL Semifinal Playoffs



The USFL enters its 4-team playoff from the site of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Postseason games were assigned by crews, not individually like the NFL playoffs. There are minimal substitutions that are not performance based. Two crews will work the Semifinal Playoffs with a third crew (plus one alternate) handling the League Championship Game.

James Carter’s crew will work the North Division Playoff and Duane Heydt’s crew is on the South Division Playoff. Both semifinal games are on Saturday, June 25.
