After news broke online on when an XFL ad would appear on the Fox telecast of Super Bowl LIV. XFL super fans were excited to see it on TV.
XFL commercials have been seen during NFL playoff games and on networks like ESPN during the build-up to the Super Bowl. Having an XFL commercial on the biggest TV show of the year was an excellent opportunity to get the word out on the XFL.
When the ad finally aired after the Disney + Falcon & Winter Solider and Discover ad. Well, it was kind of a dud. See for yourself…
Don’t go into withdrawal, football isn’t over. FOX is giving you more of the game of you love, with the launch of the new @XFL2020.— XFL on FOX (@XFLonFOX) February 1, 2020

The Dr. rambles on and on before the last couple seconds; then, they mention the XFL. It was a missed opportunity on a massive stage.
Having a Super Bowl commercial in itself is a win for the XFL, considering last year’s Super Bowl broadcast on CBS only mentioned the AAF at the end of the telecast.
With so many other great marketing and commercials the XFL has done, why did they go with this one. It might have been a Fox sports decision and out of the hands of the XFL.
Check out the XFL commercial that aired on ESPN and leave a comment on which one gets you more excited about the XFL.
