The XFL held a town hall meeting on Sunday night in Texas, where it was announced which cities will be hosting XFL teams for the upcoming 2023 season.
And St. Louis, arguably the XFL’s most popular city, is getting a team yet again!
The new host cities — Las Vegas, Orlando and San Antonio — will join Arlington, Texas; Houston; St. Louis; Seattle; and Washington, D.C. The XFL dropped New York, Los Angeles and Tampa Bay from its lineup; those markets had the three lowest average attendance figures during the 2020 season, when the XFL last played.
The pairings are as follows:
- Arlington, Texas: Choctaw Stadium, coach Bob Stoops
- Houston: TDECU Stadium, coach Wade Phillips
- Orlando: Camping World Stadium, coach Terrell Buckley
- Las Vegas: TBA stadium, coach Rod Woodson
- San Antonio: The Alamodome, coach Hines Ward
- Seattle: Lumen Field, coach Jim Haslett
- St. Louis: The Dome, coach Anthony Becht
- Washington D.C.: Audi Field, coach Reggie Barlow
The XFL’s first game is scheduled for Feb. 18, 2023.
