XFL Unveils Eight Cities, Venues for Teams to Launch in February 2020

Grant SmithDec 06, 2018

"We are committed to being ingrained in the local community and extremely fortunate that our teams will have world-class facilities to call home", XFL CEO Oliver Luck said.

It was announced earlier this year that XFL 2: Electric Boogaloo would launch in 2020, and on Wednesday, an important piece to the puzzle was revealed, as McMahon held a press conference with a whole lot of folks to announce the cities that will play host to the league. Luck said they want more in-game rhythm and flow, and he also spoke about safety precautions.

So who will the eight cities joining the XFL be?

The XFL will launch in 2020 on February 8 and 9, which is the weekend after Super Bowl LIV.

He said that their ideas for the league and their reimagined version of football are now being tested.

It did not give details on how the league will be different than the NFL but said research is underway.

Luck said they are working with players in MS so they can test out some of their ideas.

At Wednesday's press conference, Luck said the XFL will test for PEDs. Luck spoke about former players, coaches, and medical professionals about modifying the game so that it's familiar yet unique. It will also cater to families looking for affordable ticket options. He said there will be an app that will serve as the central hub for the league.

Luck said more than 30 cities expressed interest in hosting XFL teams.

They are a proponent of legal and safe gambling on the game. Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months. He mentioned the hundreds of players that get cut from the National Football League and they will be invited to try out for the XFL. Instead, McMahon will spend $500 million on XFL within the first three seasons of the league.
