  • Seattle awarded new XFL team to play at Century Link Field

In all, eight cities will get an XFL squad: Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, and Washington, D.C.

MetLife Stadium (Giants and Jets), Raymond James Stadium (Buccaneers), StubHub Center (Chargers) and CenturyLink Field (Seahawks) will see XFL action. The team's name was not announced.

Though not announced, the league has already registered XFL-related domains for Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, Minnesota, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco. "We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base". They want fast-paced action with "more ball and less stall".

The XFL was started by WWE's Vince McMahon and will debut in 2020. He said there will be an app that will serve as the central hub for the league. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families. This online shop was initially re-opened after Vince McMahon's announced months ago, but they have added new items in preparation for added interest.

"Our goal was to establish a spirit of true partnership and build an organization and a year-round presence that makes these cities proud", said League Commissioner Oliver Luck.

It's still unclear what the nicknames will be for these teams, although the XFL's first run in 2001 included franchises in a few of these cities. But to the dismay of fans across the region, the Rams moved back to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.

The inaugural XFL season will take place on the weekend of February 8-9, 2020 - the week following Super Bowl LIII. Teams will play a 10-game regular-season schedule and two-round playoffs in the months immediately following the National Football League season.
