Los Angeles, New York among eight cities in new XFL

XFL is returning in 2020. XFL

The nation's capital will receive an XFL team when the league starts up in 2020 and they've chosen Audi Field to be the venue.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck (father of Andrew Luck) will serve as Commissioner of the league, and was also on-hand to push the XFL's use of next generation technology, a simplification of the rules, an increased focus on player safety as well as speeding up the game overall.

Luck said the biggest expense for the league will be paying the players and coaches, with the average salary of the 40-man rosters expected to be around $75,000.

McMahon said there will be more innovative and exciting play.

When the reports began about a year ago that Vince McMahon was working on bringing back the XFL, the defunct league that he once called a colossal failure, I was confused. "New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season".

Luck said the "football reimagined" committee was formed with various professionals to figure out how to tweak the game to make it familiar and distinctive at the same time. He said kickoff will be on February 8, and 9 in 2020, the weekend after the Super Bowl. They want speed with modified officiating and a faster play clock. They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts.

Luck says they will look for the best coaches and players available and majority will have college and National Football League experience. He said the goal was to establish a true partnership with cities instead of just renting a building.

The XFL is already reserving season tickets for their return season on their official website which was announced during the conference held today. 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.
