XFL announces eight teams, cities and stadiums for its return in 2020

XFL announces eight teams, cities and stadiums for its return in 2020

MetLife Stadium (Giants and Jets), Raymond James Stadium (Buccaneers), StubHub Center (Chargers) and CenturyLink Field (Seahawks) will see XFL action.

One day after the long-awaited announcement that Seattle will be getting an National Hockey League franchise, the city is also going to be the site of one of the eight franchises in the rebooted XFL.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck (father of Andrew Luck) will serve as Commissioner of the league, and was also on-hand to push the XFL's use of next generation technology, a simplification of the rules, an increased focus on player safety as well as speeding up the game overall.

Vince McMahon's original XFL lasted one season of play. It was revived this year by Vince McMahon and plans to start again in Spring 2020. This venue was the home for the NFL's Rams before they moved to Los Angeles, but the stadium will now welcome the XFL.

A big question facing the XFL is how many fans it will be able to persuade to show up to its games. The eight teams will play 10-game schedules, meaning the whole thing will be wrapped up before May.

Feds Powell, in dovish shift, says rates near neutral
Mr Powell's comments appear to implicitly reject arguments from President Trump that past interest rate rises have been a mistake. Some members noted the further appreciation of the USA greenback could also pose as a downside risk to the economy.

The refurbished XFL falls under the auspices of McMahon's Alpha Entertainment.

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

Luck says they will look for the best coaches and players available and majority will have college and National Football League experience.

Some of those players have filtered up to the CFL in the past. It is easy at this point to wave off the XFL as the wild idea of a rich man, especially when it keeps talking about innovations without actually saying what they are, but it aims to employ a lot of football players. The XFL's Dallas franchise will play its games at Globe Life Park in Arlington. "We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base".

He said in the coming months players will be signed, and team names will be announced.
