"New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season". "It is home to two other football teams, and truth be told, it has room for a third".

"Combined these markets comprise almost a quarter of the nation's population", said XFL commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck at a news conference held at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

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).

All eight XFL teams will have the same roster budget. Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months.

On the heels of Tuesday's NHL expansion announcement, Seattle was announced as one of the eight inaugural cities to begin play when the new XFL football league kicks off in 2020.

McMahon's league played one season in 2001 and then was disbanded. Teams will play a 10-game regular-season schedule and two-round playoffs in the months immediately following the National Football League season. The XFL is now testing out elements of its format with junior college football teams to solidify a final on-field product.

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

The league's founder, Vince McMahon, is the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, a wrestling entertainment company. It's a game that's fan-centric, innovative and technologically advanced with real-time fan engagement. "And our research indicates that fans want more football, and we intend to provide it to them". The league's opening weekend will arrive one year after the Alliance of American Football kicks off on February 9, 2019.
