·2 min read

The XFL will kick off in slightly less than seven months. The league announced the 8 cities that will be the home to each of its teams for the 2023 season.

There are some familiar places among the eight, such as St. Louis, Washington, Seattle, Houston, and Las Vegas.

“I’m psyched to reveal the cities that our players will have the chance to represent and compete in. This is another massive moment for the XFL, and I’m ready to feel the electricity our dedicated fans will bring to these iconic venues,” league owner Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said in a statement.

“There is great energy building within our league and there is still much more to come… and I can promise it’s going to be worth the wait. We have been working on fresh, new logos and uniforms – even working with some of the team names you already know – that will match the dynamic and innovative vision of our league. We see you, we hear you and your excitement fuels us to continue to bring you the absolute best. We have just under seven months until kickoff and the countdown is officially on.”

 

The coaches and venues were also revealed as part of the announcement on Sunday for the league that will kick off on Feb. 18, 2023.
