Team logos, names, coaches, stadiums, more
That XFL is back in 2023, its third iteration after attempting a Spring Football League two more times. The first came in 2001, and there was one too COVID-19 abbreviated trial in 2020. Before the league, which is run by an ownership group led by league co-owners Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia, can get started, however, it first needed its eight teams to logos and team names to have.
We have that now as the XFL publishes the franchise names and brands Monday, the next step as the league prepares for its February kickoff to be shown on the ESPN family of networks. What’s next?
