The XFL is officially coming to Seattle. He said it's been 20 years since the original XFL was announced, and a lot of things have changed since then.

Murphy confirmed that a third football team will be utilizing the stadium when the XFL returns in 2020.

The eight XFL teams will be based in New York, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington, D.C. Games will take place at the following venues: MetLife Stadium in New Jersey; Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas; TDECU Stadium in Houston; StubHub Center in Carson, California; The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis; CenturyLink Field in Seattle; Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay; and Audi Field in Washington.

McMahon, the league's founder, said he's confident the XFL will stick around this time because it has a long-term financial commitment and there is a "clamoring" from TV networks for live sports events.

Powell's POV: A press conference was broadcast on the XFL social media pages. McMahon also said the game will be played faster-in about two hours-and more "fan-centric".

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", said Luck. Luck says they want to listen to fans and say they already have great ideas from them. It will also cater to families looking for affordable ticket options.

Today's big reveal fell in line with a report from last week which caught a potential leak on the XFL website, listing the phone numbers for eight league headquarters in different cities around the country.
