The XFL has selected and announced the eight cities it plans to establish its first teams in.

We’ve been following the XFL pretty closely. Early this year, pro wrestling executive Vince McMahon announced he was re-upping the XFL in January. And ever since then, he’s been quietly preparing to take the world by storm and challenge the NFL’s relative market dominance.

“After months of research and consideration, we’re thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL’s eight inaugural teams,” XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck said. “We are committed to being ingrained in the local community and extremely fortunate that our teams will have world-class facilities to call home.”

The first games will kick off during the weekend of February 8-9, 2020, just after the Super Bowl.

We’re about to live in a world where football is on all the time. Truly a beautiful thought.
