STAMFORD, Conn. (XFL) — XFL is a brand new, fan-first league that’s reimagining the game of football and offering fans an opportunity to experience more action, access and fun.
Starting Feb. 8, 2020, our eight teams will play a 10-week regular season and a two-week postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game on April 26.
Our season lasts just 79 days and will be a non-stop sprint from the first kick to the last down.
Along the way, fans will experience a league built on three core principles:
- We love our fans and want what they want. The XFL is a league that listens.
- We get fans close to the game in fun and imaginative ways.
- TRUE TO THE GAME.
- We are faithful to the foundations of football. Never different just to be different. No gimmicks. Ever.
Why are we launching the XFL?
For the Love of Football. It’s as simple as that.
For the Love of Football is why our coaches coach, players play, and why we invite new fans and the tried-and-true to be part of it all.
If you’ve been a football fan all your life, you’ll love the XFL.
If you’ve never been to a professional football game, you’ll love the XFL (our ticket prices are affordable and family-friendly!).
What brings us all together is the love of America’s most popular sport and the desire to share more of it together.
How are we changing the game of football?
We’re evolving things just a bit. Less stall, more ball is how we describe it: a fast-paced game with fewer play stoppages.
We’ve made timing changes, common-sense rules changes, and created five gameplay innovations that will raise the excitement level and minimize the downtime.
We’re staying true to the foundations of football.
With input from our coaches, players and fans, we’re creating a game that is totally familiar – 11 on 11, 100-yard football – with a few twists.
