The XFL is a little more than six months away from the start of its season, and as the league attempts its third try, it’s expanding to three new cities and making Arlington, Texas, its headquarters for the 2023 season.
Las Vegas, San Antonio and Orlando, Fla., are all new teams to the league this year. Houston, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington, and Arlington all had teams during the first reboot of the league in 2020.
The locations of the teams and which of the previously announced coaches would be tied to each of them were announced on Sunday by the league’s owners, actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, his longtime business partner Dany Garcia and RedBird Capital Partners.
“What brings a league to life is the passion of the fandom behind it,” Garcia said in a statement. “In each of these cities we will co-create with our fans and build these teams from the ground up so that they represent the unique fabric of our communities.”
