"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said. McMahon said there's a long-term financial commitment for the league and there is a clamoring for live sports entertainment events than ever before. Luck said they want more in-game rhythm and flow, and he also spoke about safety precautions. They want fast-paced action with "more ball and less stall".

New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy kicked off the press conference and confirmed that MetLife Stadium will be home to one of the XFL teams.

They are focusing on shorter games (less than 3 hours), changes to rules with changes to punts, extra points, and more. Luck spoke about former players, coaches, and medical professionals about modifying the game so that it's familiar yet unique.
