New York Awarded XFL Team

XFL Commissioner & CEO Oliver Luck

The St. Louis team will play in The Dome at America's Center, the former home of the Rams.

The league launches in early February, 2020.

"We will be looking for the best players and coaches who want to be part of something exciting", Luck said at a news conference on Tuesday. Touting everything from faster game play to decriminalized rosters (seriously), Vince McMahon's National Football League alternative lasted just one season on its first run back in 2001.

Dallas, Houston, LA, New York, St. Louis, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C. have also been named as host cities.

XFL is coming back and at this point, it seems like Vince McMahon and his company are planning something to make this as big of a deal as possible. The New York XFL team will play at MetLife Stadium, the same venue the NFL's New York Jets and New York Giants play in.

Hazard: I might leave Chelsea instead of extending my contract
These are big games against top sides and we have to be better than them. "In the last global break he was here, training hard". However, Davinson Sanchez (hamstring), Danny Rose (groin), Kieran Trippier (groin) and Mousa Dembele (ankle) remain sidelined.


Luck said the games will feature a shorter play clock compared to the National Football League and conclude in less than three hours.

The nation's capital will receive an XFL team when the league starts up in 2020 and they've chosen Audi Field to be the venue.

Luck said the league will have fewer stoppages, ie less stall and more ball. The XFL will have a 10-week regular schedule, 45-man active rosters and two semifinal playoff games. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. But McMahon's XFL is said to be buttressed by US$100-milllion of his own money, and Luck said it is funded for a five-year plan that will give it time to grow. This is why the leaders of the CFL players association were, during Grey Cup week, none-too-subtly referring to the changing landscape of pro football when they were discussing upcoming negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

"The XFL is being built for fans and built to last".
