Study Shows 45% of Football Fans are Fired Up for the XFL

As the XFL Gears up for its February 8th kickoff, it’s looking the league is picking up steam all around. From endorsements and interest from big names in the football world to the fact that the Seattle Dragons are expecting huge masses of fans at their initial games, the hype is building. Amidst all this, West Fair Online has reported a survey in which 45% of fans are excited about the new league.

Maybe it’s because of all the ads we’ve been seeing around, from ESPN to Fox Sports, or the interest from football celebrities like Pat McAfee, but the fact remains that people are excited about spring football. As daily sports betting services like Draft Kings, Vegas casinos, betting websites and fantasy league hosts like Alt Fantasy Sports are supporting the XFL, fans have multiple outlets for betting and engagement. And the official XFL app hasn’t even dropped yet.

This market research survey reached over 32,000 fans, 60% of which had heard of the XFL, and 45% of which would be engaged with the new league. 38% of those polled said that the XFL would pose a challenge to the NFL, and with all this momentum, it’s easy to see where their optimism comes from.

The XFL is bringing elite coaches, talented players and new rules to the table, and there’s a lot of reasons for fans to be excited. Not only will Vince McMahon and Oliver Luck’s new league bring a faster, more streamlined product on the field, but they’re also making things safer for the players, and that’s a big deal in this day and age.

The XFL will make it’s return one week after the Super Bowl, on February 8th as the Seattle Dragons take on the DC Defenders at 2 pm Eastern.
