This is the second go-round for the XFL, which is backed by World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon.

Los Angeles, the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area and Dallas were among the eight cities and venues chosen to be the home sites when the XFL launches its inaugural season in February 2020. The team's name was not announced.

The XFL is officially coming to Seattle.

In the spring, the only football TDECU usually sees is the Red & White spring training game, but professional football will grace its fields in 2020.

Vince introduced XFL commissioner Oliver Luck, who said the XFL wants to complement fall football and reimagine the game.




"We believe that St. Louisans will take to this new brand of reimagined football as much as they have taken to well, every WWE event that's ever been held in St. Louis", said Kitty Ratcliffe, president of Explore St. Louis, during the news conference.

It did not give details on how the league will be different than the NFL but said research is underway. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families.

It's still unclear what the nicknames will be for these teams, although the XFL's first run in 2001 included franchises in a few of these cities.

The NFL Cardinals played in St. Louis from 1960 to 1987 before relocating to Arizona. The XFL is now testing out elements of its format with junior college football teams to solidify a final on-field product. But to the dismay of fans across the region, the Rams moved back to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.

The official XFL website will also host the press conference when it goes live, and will likely have more information on the league and the teams once they are announced.
