The announcement of the return of the XFL was made in January and is expected to launch in 2020.

The football league is the brainchild of World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon.

Murphy announced that New Jersey would be one of the eight cites for the XFL revival in 2020 and the games will take place at Met Life Stadium.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", said Luck.

He said that their ideas for the league and their reimagined version of football are now being tested.

Luck said the games will feature a shorter play clock compared to the National Football League and conclude in less than three hours.

They are calling it, "football reimagined". It looks like the XFL will know if that is going to work soon enough, because even though the games aren't scheduled to kick off until February 2020, fans can make sure they have a seat for the event where ever they want to catch a game.

They are focusing on shorter games (less than 3 hours), changes to rules with changes to punts, extra points, and more.

Whatever the answers to those questions might prove to be, there's a more important one for football fans on this side of the border: what does all of this mean for the Canadian Football League?

Luck said they are working with players in MS so they can test out some of their ideas. Luck said players will be tested for PED's and players will get competitive salaries. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal.

Individual tickets are not on sale, but anyone interested in being an XFL fan can sign-up to be a season ticket holder on the XFL site. NFL may recognize the name as the home field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it also acts as the home for the South Florida Bulls NCAA football team.
