You know what’s better than football? MORE FOOTBALL!!! Or as close as Vince McMahon can come in his reboot of his XFL which is set to debut in 2020.
And now we can tell you exactly where after the XFL unveiled the cities and venues for its eight-team league yesterday.
Teams will play in New York at MetLife Stadium, Washington D.C. at Audi Field, Los Angeles at the StubHub Center—once again pointing out just how little effort the Chargers put into their move, Houston at TDECU Stadium, St. Louis at The Dome at America's Center, Seattle at the Century Link Field, Dallas at Globe Life Park and Tampa Bay at Raymond James Stadium.
The XFL will launch in 2020 on February 8 and 9—one weekend after Super Bowl 44 and one year after the Alliance of American Footballwhich also kicks off the week after this year’s Super Bowl 43 on February 9th of next year.
The AAF also has eight teams and a 10-week schedule but has targeted mid-size markets. It plans to act as a feeder league where players can hone their skills before possibly moving to the NFL.
But both the AAF and the XFL will feed something.
America’s love of football when they have no NFL to watch.
