Last week the XFL sent out an email to former Dallas Renegades fans announcing they would be holding a town hall event on the 24th. Shortly after that, the league let everyone know that they would be naming their host cities and venues for their 2023 return during this event.
The XFL also has a press conference setup for Monday, which many expect to hear more details on the Dallas franchise. But, before that, we finally know where the XFL will land in 2o23.
When it comes to cities, the details have been know for a while now. Between leaks and hidden pages on the XFL shop, fans have known where the league was headed. Other than a few leaks in regards to venues, we finally have the full picture.
During the town hall, XFL co-owners Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Dany Garcia revealed the big news.
Even befoe they took the stage, big news started to drop. It was revealed that at 8pm ET, reservations for season tickets would go for sale on XFL.com. We knew that we were going to get news on the locations, but nobody expected that we’d anything more than that.
Additionally, once Johnson and Garcia took the stage they also dropped another new nugget. They anticipate to be enaged in the game. Rather than sitting in an owners box, they plan on being on the field during the season.
They also spoke about fans being able to help shape the league. They didn’t give a lot of details around what they entails, but they said more info should be coming in a few weeks.
