The XFL will play its games during the NFL's offseason and will "complement", not directly compete with the National Football League, he added. "It is home to two other football teams, and truth be told, it has room for a third".

The Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy was on-hand to kick off the press conference at MetLife Stadium today.

Dallas, Houston, LA, New York, St. Louis, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C. have also been named as host cities. All eight teams are owned by the league.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said. Team names will be assigned in 2019. The league will start with eight teams, 45-man active rosters and a 10-week regular-season schedule, with a postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game. It folded after one season in 2001.

Giants Stadium was home to the New York/New Jersey Hitmen of the original XFL.

Urban Meyer retiring at Ohio State
He says Meyer was a great leader and was clear with both his expectations and the "culture that he wanted within the program". He could become the coach at Notre Dame - a dream job, he once called it - or he could be head coach at Florida .

It's kind of hard to believe that the XFL is coming back in 2020, but with each passing day, we get a little closer to Vince McMahon's second attempt at starting a professional football league. Vince said a lot has changed since the XFL launched 20 years ago, and he said the XFL was ahead of its time.

The XFL hopes to deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including fast-paced games and a family friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

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

"The NFL and college football are as popular today as they've ever been, with tens of millions of fans engaging each and every week". He also said they've taken input from fans and some of their best ideas have come from them. The league's opening weekend will arrive one year after the Alliance of American Football kicks off on February 9, 2019.
