During an event at MetLife Stadium, Vince McMahon and league commissioner Oliver Luck revealed Dallas, St. Louis, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington D.C. will be the first XFL cities.
The host cities were actually leaked by the XFL last week prior to the official announcement today. He mentioned the hundreds of players that get cut from the National Football League and they will be invited to try out for the XFL. Among them is a NY team based at MetLife Stadium. Teams will play a 10-game regular-season schedule and two-round playoffs in the months immediately following the National Football League season. McMahon also said the game will be played faster-in about two hours-and more "fan-centric".
Kickoff for the XFL will be February 8-9, 2020, following the Super Bowl, as the league runs during the NFL's offseason.
