The team's name was not announced. "We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base".

A few months ago Vince McMahon announced that the XFL will be returning, and since then McMahon has been putting the pieces in place as he prepares to relaunch the league in 2020.

It's kind of hard to believe that the XFL is coming back in 2020, but with each passing day, we get a little closer to Vince McMahon's second attempt at starting a professional football league.

Russian Federation denies it is violating nuclear arms treaty
Putin said on Wednesday that the USA decision to ditch the INF means that us authorities have decided that the U.S. Until then, Pompeo said, the USA would not "test or produce or deploy any systems" that would breach the treaty.

On Wednesday, a press conference was held at MetLife Stadium, and some big announcements were made regarding which cities will be hosting teams, and which stadiums they will be playing at. Luck says they want to listen to fans and say they already have great ideas from them. It will also cater to families looking for affordable ticket options.

Here's where the other XFL teams will play: Dallas - Globe Life Park; Houston - TDECU Stadium; Los Angeles - StubHub Center; New York - MetLife Stadium; Seattle - CenturyLink Field; Tampa Bay - Raymond James Stadium; and Washington, D.C. - Audi Field. Like the rebooted version, the original XFL had eight teams.

The NFL Cardinals played in St. Louis from 1960 to 1987 before relocating to Arizona. He said kickoff will be on February 8, and 9 in 2020, the weekend after the Super Bowl. The XFL is now testing out elements of its format with junior college football teams to solidify a final on-field product. The AAF also has eight teams and a 10-week schedule but has targeted mid-size markets. The league lasted just one season.
