XFL Cities and Stadiums Officially Announced

XFL Network Deal

The XFL has officially named the cities and stadiums that the league will play in for the 2020 season. During a live broadcast via Twitter Commissioner Oliver Luck made the official announcement.

Many fans of the XFL knew ahead of time what cities the teams would play when the website inadvertently revealed these details. The information has been removed, but some people got the locations, and it spread through social media like wildfire.

Fans seemed excited in the chat feature, but other fans were left wondering why seven of the eight teams were in NFL cities? Or even more, why not in good WWE markets that had a strong football connection as well.

The XFL is not a competitor to the NFL, rather a supplement to it. It does have some competition if you want to call it that. The Alliance of American Football league, or AAF, is beginning in February of 2019. These two leagues combined can create a year-long football experience for the consumer by essentially canceling the offseason. Any way you cut it, that is great for the fans!
