New York Awarded XFL Team

New York Awarded XFL Team

The XFL's Houston team announced on Wednesday that the University of Houston's TDECU Stadium will host the team in Spring 2020.

McMahon, the league's founder, said he's confident the XFL will stick around this time because it has a long-term financial commitment and there is a "clamoring" from TV networks for live sports events.

The XFL was originally founded in 1999, but closed after one season.

"Combined these markets comprise almost a quarter of the nation's population", said XFL commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck at a news conference held at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium. He stressed a shorter play clock and a modified officiating protocol. Luck promised a quicker pace of play with the overall goal of keeping games under three hours.

It did not give details on how the league will be different than the NFL but said research is underway. The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football.


Whatever the answers to those questions might prove to be, there's a more important one for football fans on this side of the border: what does all of this mean for the Canadian Football League? He also confirmed that the league will be testing for performance enhancing drugs, and is working with a world class panel of doctors and medical professionals to craft the best regulations possible. They want fans to have access to players and coaches.

Powell's POV: A press conference was broadcast on the XFL social media pages. Murphy confirmed that a third football team will be utilizing the stadium when the XFL returns in 2020.

They are a proponent of legal and safe gambling on the game.

Team names, uniforms, and personnel won't be announced until next year.

"The XFL is being built for fans and built to last".
