The Philadelphia Stars are scheduled to meet with University of Maryland athletic officials Monday to discuss renting Byrd Stadium for the U.S. Football League's 1985 spring season, university officials said.
Dick Dull, the university's athletic director, confirmed the meeting. "They'll be down Monday," Dull said. "I think they're very, very serious." He added that Stars General Manager Carl Peterson had telephoned him Thursday to request the meeting.
Stars owner Myles Tanenbaum announced his intention earlier this year to relocate his team in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium when the league shifts to a fall schedule in 1986.
Dull said he could be "persuaded to take a hard look" at a Stars offer if there was some benefit to the university's athletic program. "The negative side is what it would do to my field," Dull said, noting the USFL played "at strange times and in strange weather" . . .
U.S. Football League owners have given the league the go-ahead to file an antitrust suit against the rival National Football League, according to an attorney representing the USFL . . .
Orlando, Fla., officially became the site of a USFL franchise when the league formally approved the purchase of the Washington Federals by Donald Dizney, an Orlando businessman.
