The XFL is coming to a city near you — if you live close to one of its eight starting points.
The re-launched football league announced Wednesday at a press conference the locations of the eight teams that will compete in its first season back in 2020. These eight cities will stage games at some marquee venues.
The cities/venues are:
— Seattle, Wash., at CenturyLink Field
— New York, N.Y., at MetLife Stadium
— Dallas, Texas, at Globe Life Park
— Houston, Texas, at TDECU Stadium
— Los Angeles, Calif., at StubHub Center
— St. Louis, Mo., at The Dome at America?s Center
— Tampa Bay, Fla., at Raymond James Stadium
— Washington, D.C., at Audi Field
The teams haven’t announced their nicknames or colors, but XFL commissioner Oliver Luck made a few other notable revelations during Wednesday’s press conference.
The new XFL will begin play in February 2020 the weekend after Super Bowl LIV. Each team will play 10 regular-season games, and the best will advance to the playoffs, which will consist of semifinals and a championship game.
WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon revived the XFL in January, 17 years after its forerunner’s first and only season.
