Seattle among 8 cities awarded XFL team

Vince Mc Mahon speaks about the XFL in 2000. The upstart football league is set to make a comeback

XFL domain names for several other cities have reportedly been registered, hinting at possible future expansion. Like the rebooted version, the original XFL had eight teams.

The other host cities include New York (MetLife Stadium), Dallas (Globe Life Park), Houston (TDECU Stadium), Los Angeles (StubHub Center), Seattle (Century Link Field), Tampa Bay (Raymond James Stadium), and Washington D.C. (Audi Field).

The league's founder, Vince McMahon, is the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, a wrestling entertainment company.

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

McMahon thanked the media and the partner cities in attendance.

Luck said the games will feature a shorter play clock compared to the National Football League and conclude in less than three hours.

New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy kicked off the press conference and confirmed that MetLife Stadium will be home to one of the XFL teams.

Murray was similarly consistent in a 2016 interview with the BBC's John Inverdale after he defended his Olympic title. Watch the full sequence. "And to everyone who thinks people are overreacting and it was just a joke.it wasn't".

Commissioner and chief executive Oliver Luck also said there will be franchises in Houston, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa and Washington when the league kicks off the weekend of February 8-9.

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

Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced.

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

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

It seems by placing XFL cities in famous National Football League locations, they are able to possibly capitalize on the downtime those fans might have in that market in the offseason.
