Alpha Opco, which is a subsidiary of Alpha Acquico, took over ownership of all registered and pending trademarks of the XFL, along with website registrations, on August 21st.
The trademarks and registrations were previously owned by Alpha Entertainment. Alpha Entertainment was the company Vince McMahon started as the new parent owner of the recent failed XFL revival. Alpha Acquico is the joint venture between The Garcia Companies and RedBird Capital Partners Management that was made to acquire the XFL earlier in August. The purchase made former WWE Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Dany Garcia, RedBird’s Gerry Cardinale all owners and stakeholders in the league.
The recently acquired league trademarks include the trademark to the name of Alpha Entertainment, along with all the XFL IP from the league’s inaugural season from way back in 2001.
Although it was expected that the new group would retain the 2020 intellectual property, nobody was really thinking of the 2001 properties. Does this mean anything, not necessarily. But, if expansion does ever come down the road the possibility of an old franchise returning is a possibility.
