LAS VEGAS — The XFL is back with exciting new owners: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia. Last November, the league held its draft in Las Vegas with 442 non-quarterbacks and 21 quarterbacks selected from eight teams.
An additional draft will take place in January with the goal of reaching 528 players in the league before the 2023 season.
“Our league is a league of vision,” says co-owner Dany Garcia. “We are here to unleash the dreams that football makes possible and that starts today.”
“It’s going to be timed perfectly for fans who want the thrill of more touchdowns after the college and NFL season is over. We’ll be there,” she added.
All 43 XFL games will be broadcast and streamed across Disney platforms including ABC and ESPN.
