The XFL is the latest domino to fall.
The NBA indefinitely suspended its season Wednesday night, then the NHL followed suit and put a pause to its season until further notice. Major League Baseball canceled the remainder of spring training while the NCAA canceled all winter and spring tournaments — including March Madness and the Frozen Four — due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With most leagues putting a hold to their seasons, many wondered if the XFL would do the same considering it was one of the only leagues to not make a decision.
And now they have.
The XFL released a statement Thursday adding the players will be paid “their base pay and benefits for the 2020 regular season.”
