What Does Football, WWE and February Have In Common? The XFL
College football is over and your team didn't make the playoffs. The NBA doesn't even get exciting until the Summer and that means your left with what?
We've got answers! Say hello to another professional football league, the XFL. This new league is a fan-driven league that is supposedly giving us more opportunity to enjoy the game.
The league starts on February 8, 2020, with eight teams in all major cities.
- Los Angeles
- New York
- ST. Louis
- Tampa Bay
The league claims to be more about the fans and less about the stop down of play. The teams will be divided into two divisions and 4 teams in each (East/West). You wanna watch? All the major sports networks to host the games so you won't have to dig to find a play. ESPN and FOX Sports will be the hub for viewing.
Guess who is in charge? The head of WWE, Vince McMahon. Vince reportedly sold almost $300 million in WWE stock to fund this XFL project. Will it work? Did you know they tried once? I don't have a ton of details but this will get interesting. I wonder, will you be a Seattle Dragons fan 🐉?
This is the second version of the XFL. This is what the first version looked like.
