XFL returning to Tampa in 2020


Remember the XFL? It was previously launched in 2001 by WWE founder Vince McMahon as an alternative to the NFL, but folded after one season. 

Well, the XFL is back, and looking to start a team in Tampa that will play at Raymond James Stadium. 

The league says it aims to make the game a bit faster, but emphasizes fans will still see 11 vs. 11 football played on a 100-yard field with four downs. 

XFL wants to minimize idle time, speed up the game and use tech and insight to improve player safety whenever possible.

The new season wouldn't start until after the 2020 Super Bowl,
