The 1983 USFL season was the inaugural season of the United States Football League. The league's 12 teams were split into three divisions: Atlantic, Central, and Pacific. The majority of game programs for this season, as with the other two, were from the syndicated Kickoff magazine. Local game content was added but the covers were the same. 1983 was the first volume of Kickoff and each numbered edition corresponded to each team's home game. For example, the #5 issue was used for each team's fifth home game.
