The eight markets selected for the initial season of XFL 2.0 seem to have been unintentionally revealed a few days too early.
With an announcement date slated for this Wednesday, the eight markets were reported on the XFL league contact page where it was discovered by Madatory.com. This contact page no longer shows this information from what I could see, but here’s what Obligatory reported to see there last night:
Los Angeles, California
New York , NY
St. Louis, MO
Tampa Bay, FL
A comment on a post on DomainNameWire.com shared its own “information “A few hours before Mandatory reported on the list of eight, his list matches these eight plus includes information about the division’s targeting (four in the East: NY / STL / TB / WSH and four in the West: DAL / HOU / LA / SEA) arenas to According to the comment, most clubs seem to be set to use stadiums currently used by MLS clubs (Dallas, Houston, LA, NY, DC) with the others using current or previous NFL buildings (Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa Bay).
Each of the eight markets chosen for XFL’s other attempts has meant NFL franchise for a number of years, in fact everyone except one is currently home to an NFL team. XFL’s first crack back 2001 added teams in Birmingham, Orlando, Las Vegas and Memphis, in addition to the NFL markets Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. The league lasted only one season but was noted by many football fans who enjoyed some of the unconventional rules as the football front instead of a coin flip and did not allow teams to kick to score extra points after touchdowns, two-point changes only.
The new XFL is scheduled to start its initial season 2020, one year after the new US Football Completion starts in 2019.
