On the heels of Tuesday's NHL expansion announcement, Seattle was announced as one of the eight inaugural cities to begin play when the new XFL football league kicks off in 2020.

"New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season", Gov. Phil Murphy said at the news conference.

"We are committed to being ingrained in the local community and extremely fortunate that our teams will have world-class facilities to call home", XFL CEO Oliver Luck said. He stressed a shorter play clock and a modified officiating protocol.

Luck said the league will have fewer stoppages, ie less stall and more ball.

"We believe launching in February 2020 gives us the time to get the game, the fan experience and the partnerships right, and we believe we are well on our way", Luck said.

McMahon said there will be more innovative and exciting play. It is easy at this point to wave off the XFL as the wild idea of a rich man, especially when it keeps talking about innovations without actually saying what they are, but it aims to employ a lot of football players. He wants a crisp game that takes less than three hours. They want fans to have access to players and coaches.

At Wednesday's press conference, Luck said the XFL will test for PEDs. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. He mentioned the hundreds of players that get cut from the National Football League and they will be invited to try out for the XFL. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal.

"The XFL is being built for fans and built to last". NFL may recognize the name as the home field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it also acts as the home for the South Florida Bulls NCAA football team.
