St Louis and Seattle will reportedly be getting XFL teams

The rebooted XFL will be announcing its initial eight cities and venues next week – and reports suggest that St Louis and Seattle will be getting teams.

According to one report, St Louis will play 10 games in the league’s inaugural 2020 season, with five scheduled at the Dome at America’s Center.

St Louis has been without a professional football team since the Rams moved to Los Angeles following the 2015 season.

Elsewhere, Seattle has been linked with a team, as has Washington DC.

That the XFL announcement will be at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, indicates that the New York area could be getting a team too.

The eight teams in the original XFL played in New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles, Memphis, Orlando, Birmingham, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
