Here's the full list of the 8 XFL cities and their venues

After claiming they've learned from their mistakes, Vince McMahon and Commissioner Oliver Luck have re-founded the league and awarded eight franchises. It has been rebuilt under McMahon and promises the same exciting brand of football, albeit with fewer gimmicks - which is what doomed the league last time around. Touting everything from faster game play to decriminalized rosters (seriously), Vince McMahon's National Football League alternative lasted just one season on its first run back in 2001.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said in a press release.

A big question facing the XFL is how many fans it will be able to persuade to show up to its games.

Baltimore takes down the Falcons: Handing out 3 Ravens game balls
It is the second straight week that the Ravens have held their opponents to fewer than 20 points and seventh time this year. I know the mentality of this team. "This is an offense that I don't know if any of us know exactly where it's going".

They are calling it, "football reimagined". The league will begin play on February 8, 2020, the weekend after that year's Super Bowl. The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football.

They are focusing on shorter games (less than 3 hours), changes to rules with changes to punts, extra points, and more. He also confirmed that the league will be testing for performance enhancing drugs, and is working with a world class panel of doctors and medical professionals to craft the best regulations possible. It will also cater to families looking for affordable ticket options. They want fans to have access to players and coaches. Luck said players will be tested for PED's and players will get competitive salaries. The New York XFL team will play at MetLife Stadium, the same venue the NFL's New York Jets and New York Giants play in.

The commissioner also said that he expects most of the players to come from the large pool of guys who can't stick on an National Football League roster.

Over their last four games, West Ham have picked up five points. " Felipe is improving game by game", said Zabaleta. It is important that we are very strong and well organised to start with.

They are a proponent of legal and safe gambling on the game.
