In January 2020, the new professional American Football League will launch according to Pro Football Talk!
her name XFL. It might ring a bell because it’s not entirely new. In fact, the XFL was created in 2001 by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) Vince McMahon and television network NBC, but it only lasted for one season. McMahon announced that he had decided to invest nearly $100 million in revitalizing the program. He is the only investor.
The league was to consist of eight teams of 40 players in the first season, a schedule of ten games and four qualified for the playoffs. The season should begin between the NFL Conference Finals and the Super Bowl.
McMahon’s motto is “reinventing football”. Short matches (two hours), simple rules, new broadcasting formats and above all nothing to do with political and social issues. In other words, he wants to fix what could be a problem in the NFL right now. Even if he doesn’t want to compete with the big leagues, he doesn’t hesitate to send a small shovel.
