In a week that saw multiple reports on XFL cities being chosen, this week’s episode sets the record straight as we discuss everything you need to know when it comes to the future locations of the 8 XFL teams in 2020. As more news comes out, business is picking up and we are jam packed with great XFL talk and a huge week ahead for the league!
The XFL has a planned press event on December 5th to officially unveil the cities, but due to an accidental (or accidentally on purpose) leak on the league website, 8 cities have been named.
