Seattle among 8 cities awarded XFL team

XFL announces eight teams, cities and stadiums for its return in 2020

Set for a 2020 reboot, the XFL has announced the first eight league-owned franchises that will open up for business when the league kicks off again in 2020.

The football league founded by wrestling entrepreneur Vince McMahon will be absent in several of the largest television markets: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston and Atlanta.

The XFL was started by WWE's Vince McMahon and will debut in 2020.

On Wednesday, a press conference was held at MetLife Stadium, and some big announcements were made regarding which cities will be hosting teams, and which stadiums they will be playing at.

It did not give details on how the league will be different than the NFL but said research is underway.

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? According to a release, the league will prioritize "fast-paced games with fewer play stoppages and simpler rules". The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families. This is why the leaders of the CFL players association were, during Grey Cup week, none-too-subtly referring to the changing landscape of pro football when they were discussing upcoming negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement. Luck said players will be tested for PED's and players will get competitive salaries. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks.

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

"The XFL is being built for fans and built to last". Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
