The football league that promises to “reimagine football for the 21st century” inked multiyear agreements that will place the XFL’s 2020 games on ESPN, ESPN2, ABC, Fox, FS1 and FS2. The league kicks off on the weekend of Feb. 8-9, 2020.

The inaugural XFL season will launch with teams in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington D.C. Each team will compete with a 45-man active roster over a 10-week regular season with a postseason consisting of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game.

WWE boss Vince McMahon, XFL founder and chairman, is personally funding the new league.

“We are thrilled to partner with ESPN and FOX Sports, two innovative media companies with extensive experience in world-class football production that will undoubtedly help us reimagine football,” said McMahon. “The XFL broadcast schedule provides us with incredible reach and makes it easy for fans to watch our games consistently every weekend.”
