What is XFL?
In 2018, Alpha Enterprise announced the formation of the XFL. A 10 week season at the beginning of 2020.
The WWE CEO Vince McMahon launched XFL, a professional football league.
According to the planned schedule, the play was from Feb 8 until the championship game on April 26. (Due to the upliftment in CO-VID 19 the event is now postponed)
What does XFL stand for?
In all honesty, this has never been defined. When McMahon launched the first XFL back in 1999. The assumption was that XFL stands for “Xtreme Football League” based on the league title of the WWE. Later on, McMahon said that this was not the case. While F and L were obvious Football League. So, therefore, there is no meaning behind “X”.
Who are the teams?
1- Dallas Renegades
2- DC Defenders
3- Houston Roughnecks
4- Los Angeles Wildcats
5- New York Guardians
6- Seattle Dragons
