The New XFL Football League Skips Chicago And Heads To St. Louis
The return of the XFL football league will include St. Louis but not Chicago.
Football is my favorite sport. I played in 5th grade all the way through high school. My family has been Chicago Bear season ticket holders since 1982.
When the XFL came out in 2001, I was curious, so I went to see the Chicago Enforcers play at Soldier Field. I had a great time. Unfortunately, the league only lasted one season.
Recently, it was announced that it was coming back in 2020. They made a huge announcement this week.
According to cbssports.com,
"The new XFL took a step toward reality on Wednesday with the reveal of its eight teams and stadiums."
I was very surprised that Chicago was not included. The closest location to Rockford is St. Louis.
Here are the 2020 XFL teams & stadiums.
- City: St. Louis
Stadium: The Dome at America's Center (St. Louis, Missouri)
- City: Dallas
Stadium: Globe Life Park in Arlington (Arlington, Texas)
