XFL Announces final cities


Three of the eight teams in XFL 3.0 will reside in Texas when the league debuts in February 2023. On Sunday night, the XFL announced that teams would be located in Dallas (Arlington), Houston, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Orlando, St. Louis, Seattle, and Washington.

In the second XFL season, teams were based in L.A., New York, and Tampa. Orlando, Las Vegas, and San Antonio have replaced those cities.

Seattle and St. Louis were successful for XFL 2.0. Neither New York/New Jersey nor California will have teams in the league.

Bob Stoops will coach the Dallas team, Wade Phillips will coach the Houton team, and Hines Ward will coach the San Antonio team.

St. Louis' team is coached by Anthony Becht. Coach Terrell Buckley will oversee the Orlando team. In Washington, Reggie Barlow will coach the squad. Seattle's franchise will be handled by Jim Haslett. As for the Las Vegas franchise, Rod Woodson will coach it.

It's exciting to see that San Antonio gets a team this year after the AAF run with the Commanders. The San Antonio Commanders had the absolute best turnout of fans in the AAF out of all the teams. Although the NFL has taken the Commanders name and given it to Washington, the SA fans took a kick in the face because they were hoping to carry that name in the future. The USFL came and skipped over San Antonio so the fan took another blow. I'm pretty sure with addition to the XFL league, San Antonio fans will show up and show out for the 2023 season.
