XFL cities and stadiums announced

Earlier this year Vince McMahon announced that he’ll be relaunching what could be considered his only failed venture Xtreme Football League or XFL and they have been preparing for its relaunch ever since.

On Wednesday, the first big move towards XFLs return was made as the League Officials held a Live Press conference at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jerse.

During the press conference, they formally announced the cities and the stadiums that are going to be part of league’s return. They also revealed their 4 points agenda to redefine the game.  You can check out both below:

XFL will focus on these 4 areas:

  • Speed: The goal is for the XFL games to be crisp, fast paced and lasting 3 hours or less.
  • Meaningful on-field action: Rule changes affecting punts, punt returns, kickoffs and play clock.
  • More “in-game rhythm and flow”: Limiting gameplay time outs, TV time outs and simplifying the rules so there are fewer interruptions.
  • Player Safety: Extensive health and wellness program with input from an expert medical board.
