Vince McMahon's XFL Has New Secondary League Competition

Vince McMahon thought when he announced the return of the XFL for 2020 back in January that his biggest competitionĀ would be the NFL. Today, however, Charlie Ebersol, who was behind the documentary on the XFL that aired last year during ESPNā€™sĀ 30 for 30Ā series, announced that his league, named the "Alliance of American Football" will debut on February 9, 2019, just one week afterĀ Super Bowl LIII.

The plans for league include a 10 week run with 50-man teams. The initialĀ contest and the championship game will air on CBS and one game a week on CBS Sports Network, all other games will be broadcast on the league's app which will include fantasy play.

The league will be overseen by managerĀ Bill Polian who is a former NFL general manager, currently working for ESPN. The players will be managed by former Pro Bowl Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu and the team will be guided by former USC standout and executive J.K. McKay. The league will also have advisers which will include former NFL players Hines Ward and Justin Tuck, as well as Dick Ebersol.

Dick Ebersol interestingly was the producer for WWE Saturday Night's Main Event that brought WWE to new audiences in the 80s and early 90s.
