He said the original XFL was 20 years ahead of its time and so much has changed.

A big question facing the XFL is how many fans it will be able to persuade to show up to its games. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon stated that he would spend $100 million on the league but that nothing close to what he will end up spending.

League officials promise the new XFL will be less gimmicky and controversial than its predecessor from 2001, which only lasted a season.

Luck stressed that the XFL will be "football reimagined" with "less stall, more ball".

That's when both hulking men heard a verdict that didn't satisfy them, but almost guaranteed a rematch of this exciting showdown. Fans and pundits have reacted with disbelief after Tyson Fury's world title bout with Deontay Wilder ended a draw.

The inaugural XFL season will take place on the weekend of February 8-9, 2020 - the week following Super Bowl LIII. He stressed a shorter play clock and a modified officiating protocol. The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football. They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts. 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.

Powell's POV: A press conference was broadcast on the XFL social media pages.

Luck says they will look for the best coaches and players available and majority will have college and National Football League experience. Four of those stadiums are now home to NFL teams, while one is home to a Major League Baseball team, one is home to a Major League Soccer team, one his home to a college football team and one is a former home of an NFL team. He said the goal was to establish a true partnership with cities instead of just renting a building. NFL may recognize the name as the home field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it also acts as the home for the South Florida Bulls NCAA football team.
