Los Angeles, St. Louis officially getting XFL teams in 2020

XFL Commissioner & CEO Oliver Luck

Louis, Washington, Tampa Bay and Seattle will try to find success where the 2001 XFL failed.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said.

NY and Washington are among the locations to house franchises for the competition, with their games to be held at MetLife Stadium and Audi Field respectively.

Dec 5, 2018-The XFL today announced the eight cities and venues its teams will call home when the league launches the weekend of February 8-9, 2020.

Losing their National Football League team made St. Louis a prime city to welcome an XFL club. McMahon explored other possibilities to broadcast a second season, ultimately deciding to hang a closed sign in the window that was the XFL. Luck said. "It's a game that's fast-paced, high-octane, up-tempo, with a great rhythm, a great flow, with fewer stoppages in play". He then introduced Vince McMahon. He also said they've taken input from fans and some of their best ideas have come from them.

Luck said they want the XFL to be affordable for families and they are working on lower ticket prices.

McMahon said there is a long term financial commitment to the XFL, and that the game play will be innovative and exciting.

By the time the XFL begins playing again in 2020, it will have been almost two decades since the franchise existed. The XFL will target players who are cut from 90-man National Football League rosters at the end of training camp and have its first supplemental draft in the early fall of 2019.

He said that their ideas for the league and their reimagined version of football are now being tested.

While teams have no staff, no coaches, players or even names, Luck noted that as of Wednesday fans could go online and put deposits down on season tickets. The league will start with eight teams, 45-man active rosters and a 10-week regular-season schedule, with a postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game.
