Louis awarded XFL franchise

07 December 2018

The XFL's eight teams for its opening season are Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C.

The St. Louis team will play in The Dome at America's Center, the former home of the Rams. Though it came into being with a lot of fanfare, the XFL quickly folded after poor television ratings.

The XFL's New York City franchise will play its games at MetLife Stadium.

McMahon is expected to spend almost $500million over the first three years of the league, according to reports. Kickoff will be on the weekend of February 8th and 9th, 2020. 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. "September 1 is the big, big cut-down date". Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months. "We plan to invite those players to try out for the XFL".

McMahon thanked the media and the partner cities in attendance.

Luck said fans can go to to put a deposit on season tickets. All eight franchises will be owned by McMahon's company, Alpha Entertainment, in a single-entity format. It's been estimated that both NBC and WWE lost $35 million on the venture. The goal is to announce them in the first quarter of 2019.

The new XFL will deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including fast-paced games and a family-friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

Luck also said there was an active effort to guarantee lower ticket costs compared with other professional sporting events, but no concrete numbers were offered.

It's still a long wait for opening day in 2020, but this gives McMahon and Luck enough time to avoid past failures.
