XFL To Reveal Teams And Venues At Today's Press Conference

Oliver Luck, the CEO and Commissioner of the XFL, announced the eight cities in a Wednesday news conference.

The St. Louis team will play in The Dome at America's Center, where the St. Louis Rams played in downtown St. Louis.

The football league is the brainchild of World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon.

Vince thanked the cities and venues who will be XFL partners moving forward.

Those cities include: St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington D.C.

XFL To Reveal Teams And Venues At Today's Press Conference

In the spring, the only football TDECU usually sees is the Red & White spring training game, but professional football will grace its fields in 2020.

"The XFL will offer fast-paced games with fewer play stoppages and simpler rules", the league said in a news release. He said research indicates fans want more football, and they want to give it to them. An 80,000-seat venue like MetLife Stadium is going to be tough to fill, or even come close to filling, and tens of thousands of empty seats run the risk of making the XFL look bush league. The building is home to two National Football League teams - the New York Giants and New York Jets - and of course, next year's WrestleMania 35.

Seattle: CenturyLink Field, home of the Seahawks. 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.

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

The XFL was originally founded in 1999, but closed after one season.
