The St. Louis team will play its games at The Dome at America's Center, known as the Edward Jones Dome when the Rams called it home.

The XFL, a controversial professional football league that lasted for one year in 2001, announced the the league's rebirth Wednesday. It folded back in 2001 after a number of problems and not receiving almost the amount of attention or achieving the popularity levels that Vince McMahon thought it would.

Luck said the XFL will air on multiple platforms, with details on media partners to come in the near future. For now, the Jets and Giants better prepare themselves for some new offseason tennants.

On the heels of Tuesday's NHL expansion announcement, Seattle was announced as one of the eight inaugural cities to begin play when the new XFL football league kicks off in 2020. McMahon explored other possibilities to broadcast a second season, ultimately deciding to hang a closed sign in the window that was the XFL.

Hegerberg herself spoke after the incident, saying: "He came to me afterwards and was really sad that it went that way". After his question moved, Martin Solveig has made a gesture of most elegant, inviting Ada Hegerberg to dance a waltz.

Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced.

Commissioner Luck emphasized that they are committed to "listening to the fans" and keeping each game well under three hours. It opened with the Governor of New Jersey, who introduced Vince McMahon.

Luck says they will look for the best coaches and players available and majority will have college and National Football League experience. Team names, logos, colors, and players will be announced in the coming weeks and months. Rules will be simplified and broadcasts will air fewer commercials. "New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season".

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.
