Vince McMahon Officially Announces Relaunch Of The XFL

It looks as though all of the recent speculation has proven to be true, as WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon has officially announced that the XFL will be relaunched beginning in 2020.

The previous incarnation of the XFL launched back in 2001, but only lasted for a single season.

Below is WWE.com's statement regarding the XFL relaunch:

Professional football will be reimagined when the new XFL kicks off in early 2020, Vince McMahon announced in a live stream event today.

The XFL will deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including shorter, fast-paced games and a family-friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

Plans for the XFL at launch include eight teams, 40-man active rosters and a 10-week regular-season schedule, with a postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game.

 “The new XFL is an exciting opportunity to reimagine America’s favorite sport,” said McMahon. “As we move towards kickoff, we look forward to listening and implementing innovative ideas from players, coaches, medical experts, technology executives, the media and most importantly football fans.”

McMahon, a visionary and an accomplished business executive, is personally funding this venture through Alpha Entertainment, a new private entity. McMahon will continue as WWE Chairman & CEO.
