The Rock Seemingly Confirms XFL Will Play in Host Cities for 2023 Return

Yesterday XFL co-owner Dany Garcia took to Instagram to drop a tease that XFL news will be coming this week. The video shows Garcia walking through the streets of New York with the caption

I like walking into an eventful week in NYC. @xfl announcement coming soon ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Not much longer after, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shared a new teaser video for the XFL also mentioning big news was coming this week.

In his message he says Our XFL will soon humbly take the fields in stadiums across our country”.

This sentence alone seems to confirm the questions around if the XFL would be using a hub city in 2023.

It has been reported that XFL leadership had been considering a central location, but since then have shifted towards bringing cities to their home markets.

As for what the news is going to be, it’s likely that we hear news around the leagues broadcast partners. It’s been rumored that the league will be working with ABC/ESPN with ESPN+ potentially being a major factor. We’ve also heard rumors that Disney may be interested in investing in the XFL.

As for cities, we’ve been able to confirm Dallas, Orlando, San Antonio and Seattle. It also looks like the XFL may be making a play to return to Las Vegas, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them end up in St. Louis.

For everyone that has been patient, it’s finally paying off. We’ve now learned all of the coaches, the return of the Summer showcase and a slew of hires. The XFL is really starting to ramp up towards their 2023 return, and we’ll keep you posted as the news drops.

Are you looking forward to the return of the XFL? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below or join the conversation on Discord.

  1. Please come to St. Louis. We are hungry for football. We were strong supporters when the xfl was here and we’ll be bigger and better again. Football in the Lou!!!!

  2. I don’t see why St. Louis is not one of the confirmed cities! They led the league in attendance before the pandemic hit! Damn! What more do it have to do?

  4. THERE NEEDS TO BE A TEAM IN NEW YORK CITY/STATE (NOT NEW JERSEY). THERE ARE TWO TEAMS IN TEXAS AND ONLY EIGHT TEAMS IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE!!! IF THEY DONT PUT A TEAM IN NEW YORK IM JUST GONNA GIVE UP ON SPRING FOOTBALL. IF THEY PUT ONE IN PHILADELPHIA AND NOT NEW YORK IM DAMN SURE NEVER WATCHING THAT!!!

  5. Bringing the XFL to North Carolina would be outstanding. You have Charlotte of course, Raleigh, Greensboro, Wilmington, Fayetteville and Winston Salem. All prime locations for huge turnouts.

  6. Tampa Bay. The market was good to the TB Bandits and TB storm. Fans were coming out to support the XFL’s TB Vipers. Biggest issue was, team needs to play in a different location other than TB stadium. That stadium is way to large for an XFL crowd me. I was at every home game. My kids became instant fans.
