The XFL was set-up in 2001 through an accord among NBC and WWF (WWE), headed by Vince McMahon.

The league got off to a strong beginning, but eventually its low viewership ratings caused it to end after only one season.

The league came back in 2020, with McMahon at the helm of the relaunch, however, five weeks after, COVID-19 necessitated a temporary closure.

The league had no choice but to declare bankruptcy and needed to liquidate its assets.

A consortium structured by Dany Garcia, which included Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, purchased the league out of insolvency for $15 million, they aim to get the league back in operation in 2023.

In order to keep costs low, all XFL teams will be based in Arlington, Texas, and will only travel for the times that they have competitions.

The league is planned to run for 10 weeks before there will be two rounds of playoffs beginning on Saturday, May 13th in spring.
