The XFL picks St. Louis as one of eight franchises

Football is back! St. Louis awarded XFL franchise

The announcement was made by XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during a press conference that included representatives from all eight markets.

It seems that the official XFL website prematurely posted a listing of cities - which has since been deleted - that will join the league.

The Gateway to the West, St. Louis represents opportunity, promise, and a legacy of great football.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", said Luck. "In 2020, St. Louis will once again have its day in the world of professional football".

"The XFL will offer fast-paced games with fewer play stoppages and simpler rules", the league said in a news release. He then introduced Vince McMahon.

"We believe launching in February 2020 gives us the time to get the game, the fan experience and the partnerships right, and we believe we are well on our way", Luck said. An 80,000-seat venue like MetLife Stadium is going to be tough to fill, or even come close to filling, and tens of thousands of empty seats run the risk of making the XFL look bush league. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families. Seattle will be part of the revamped league, with a team playing at CenturyLink Field.

The league previously had one season in 2001. Four of those stadiums are now home to NFL teams, while one is home to a Major League Baseball team, one is home to a Major League Soccer team, one his home to a college football team and one is a former home of an NFL team.
