They had various officials from the cities appear and hype their involvement in the new XFL.

In a major announcement this afternoon, the XFL revealed all eight teams that will compete in their upcoming 2020 relaunch, as well as plenty of new details for the alternative football league. CenturyLink Field is the home of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks and the MLS' Seattle Sounders FC.

"This stadium is one of our nation's finest venues for sports and entertainment.", New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said at a news conference at MetLife Stadium.

Poor attendance, however, shut the league down after one season. McMahon, sounding like he had just smoked a carton of cigarettes and then chewed some nails, explained that this new version of the XFL would be nothing like the old one, that it would be "football reimagined", and that they would soon be doing all that reimagining and would let us know what comes of it. They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts.

But McMahon's XFL is said to be buttressed by US$100-milllion of his own money, and Luck said it is funded for a five-year plan that will give it time to grow. The XFL will begin play in 2020.
