Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months.

XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck said the league will focus on maintaining a fast-paced, safer on-field product with fewer game stoppages and penalties.

Eight cities and venues will be revealed as the XFL prepares for the 2020 season. We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base.

The league's founder, Vince McMahon, is the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, a wrestling entertainment company.

McMahon said there is a long term financial commitment to the XFL, and that the game play will be innovative and exciting. He said research indicates fans want more football, and they want to give it to 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.

St. Louis is one of eight cities to be awarded a franchise in the returning XFL. But to the dismay of fans across the region, the Rams moved back to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.

The XFL, a formerly defunct and controversial football league created by Vince McMahon and the WWE in 2001, will re-open its doors in two years time and completely revamp how they approach the sport. Instead, McMahon will spend $500 million on XFL within the first three seasons of the league.

McMahon is once again betting on America's insatiable appetite for gridiron, playing a 10-game regular season followed by postseason and a championship game during the winter and spring months when the National Football League has concluded.
