The first expansion team will be the Atlanta Bandits. Atlanta’s management will be run by Jason Gudim, currently of the Dallas Daredevils. The Bandits will be aligned in the Ruth Conference’s East Division alongside New York, Coney Island, Old Bridge, and Charleston. Gudim was finally able to give Dallas fans their first playoff birth in the UBA’s 10th season in 2004, and has made enough moves to put the Daredevils on top early in a very tough RC Central Division. The team will play at AFLAC Ballpark, and will be recognized with the following logo:

The Spartans will play at Salesforce Field, and have offered the following logo for public consumption:
