St. Louis BattleHawks Team president Kurt Hunzeker is suggesting that if there is an XFL season in 2021, it should be played in St. Louis. Pro sports are grappling with a post COVID world and one way to get in games is to play in a bubble.
Teams would be in one location like the NBA is doing in Walt Disney World. The XFL is planning to do the same. After the 2020 season shutdown, the league was planning a scenario where they could play a 12-week tournament in a host city in 2021. Those plans are now with the new ownership group.
Most people think Houston would be the place to have a bubble season since the XFL’s league training camp took place there and their Championship game was supposed to take place there as well.
Hunzeker thinks his city of St. Louis is also a great place to have a bubble XFL season.
Now that it’s official, CONGRATS! @DanyGarciaCo and @TheRock on your purchase of what can be a very profitable sports league! I know you both have a long list of things to do with your new toy, but I would like to suggest 2 must-haves based on my fun experience w/ your new asset: pic.twitter.com/mkobZHWYxJ— Kurt Hunzeker (@khunzeker) August 7, 2020
2 – If a bubble tournament is in the plans, St. Louis should be the host: rabid, football-loving fan base … weather-controlled pro-quality facility … and did I mention a rabid, football-loving fan base?#ForTheLoveOfSTL— Kurt Hunzeker (@khunzeker) August 7, 2020
While St. Louis does have some of the best and most rabid fans in the XFL. Fans would not be allowed anywhere near the players and games. Also, The Dome is indoors, which being in an enclosed space seems to be an issue with this virus.
Which city would be better to have a bubble XFL season in, Houston or St. Louis. Leave your thoughts in the comments.
