XFL team names announced as part of league kickoff

The league previously announced that the eight XFL teams will be split between the East & West, including: DC, New York, St. Louis and Tampa in the East and Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Seattle in the West. In 2002, a Canadian Football League team called the Ottawa Renegades entered the league and they too share a similar looking logo of a cowboy with a bandana, although this character faces the left.

The franchise's name was revealed along with those of the upstart football league's seven other teams on Wednesday morning. Luring all who challenge them into the jaws of defeat.

Vince McMahon announced the XFL's relaunch back in January 2018, promising a "fan-centric, innovative experience" that includes "shorter, fast-paced games and a family-friendly environment".

It features all six of the aforementioned characters, numerous skin and gear sets, and one-week early access for all content. To round off the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC, 2020 will see the release of two guest characters: The Joker and Spawn .


The New York Guardians will play at MetLife Stadium under head coach Kevin Gilbride, who most recently served as the Giants offensive coordinator from 2007 to 2013.

Kurt Hunzeker, President of the XFL football team in St. Louis joined FOX 2 to talk about. "Now it is up to our fans and players to help write the story". The Guardians get the top spot based on originality - what a great idea to name the team after the gargoyles on the city's buildings, "watchdogs over the metropolis" as the introductory video describes them.

The Xtreme Football League kicks off in February 2020. The XFL has their player draft coming in October, so you won't be able to choose based on player-related allegiances right now. The original XFL played its only season in 2001, when it had a franchise in Birmingham nicknamed the Thunderbolts.
