All 8 Cities And Stadiums Confirmed For New XFL Teams

Football is back! St. Louis awarded XFL franchise

And now, 10 months after that, with the XFL on Wednesday announcing its inaugural eight cities and stadiums, here is my update: still pretty confused.

But Luck said at his press conference today that the XFL has big ambitions and isn't afraid of a big challenge.

In terms of selecting host cities for the XFL's first season, it was noted that more than 30 cities and venues expressed interest in participating, and that the league was looking for dedicated long-term partners rather than just a buildings to rent.

The cities and stadiums are Dallas (Globe Life Park), Houston (TDECU Stadium), Los Angeles (StubHub Center), St. Louis (The Dome at America's Center), Seattle (CenturyLink Field), Tampa (Raymond James Stadium), New York (MetLife Stadium) and Washington, D.C. (Audi Field). XFL domain names for several other cities have reportedly been registered, hinting at possible future expansion. The New York XFL team will play at MetLife Stadium, the same venue the NFL's New York Jets and New York Giants play in. Among them is a NY team based at MetLife Stadium. Hundreds of players get cut from the National Football League each year and they will be invited to try out, and there will be drafts & supplemental drafts.

The refurbished XFL falls under the auspices of McMahon's Alpha Entertainment. It is easy at this point to wave off the XFL as the wild idea of a rich man, especially when it keeps talking about innovations without actually saying what they are, but it aims to employ a lot of football players. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks.

The league previously had one season in 2001. "We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base".
