The XFL Announces San Antonio’s Alamodome As Host Site For League Championship Game

The XFL 2023 Season has begun, and it didn’t take very long for the league to announce the site of its championship game. The home of the San Antonio Brahmas, the Alamodome will be the venue that hosts the league’s championship game on Saturday, May 13th. The XFL 2023 title game will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.

The XFL Championship game will arrive two weeks after the playoffs start. There will be a bye week between the semifinals and the championship game. As evidenced by Sunday’s fantastic crowd turnout in San Antonio, the Alamodome is an excellent choice for a spring pro football championship game. If Hines Ward’s Brahmas make it that far, they could push for the largest crowd of the 2023 XFL season.


San Antonio to Host Inaugural XFL Championship Game

ARLINGTON, TX – February 19, 2023 – The XFL announced today that the Alamodome, home of the San Antonio Brahmas, has been selected as the host site of its inaugural XFL Championship Game. The XFL’s ownership group – Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson, and Gerry Cardinale of RedBird Capital – announced before the San Antonio Brahmas home opener against the St. Louis Battlehawks.

The XFL Championship Game will be played on May 13 at 8 p.m. ET and broadcast on ABC.

“We are thrilled to announce that San Antonio and the Alamodome will host this season’s inaugural Championship Game,” said Dany Garcia, Chairwoman, and Owner. “I have been so impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment from the fans in San Antonio. We can’t wait to bring together the best of the XFL North and XFL South to compete for the Championship title to celebrate our players, coaches, and the revival of professional football in San Antonio.”

“Our inaugural XFL season is officially rolling with our eight teams showing out and representing the passionate fans of their cities,” said Dwayne Johnson, Owner. “From now through May, our athletes have their eyes set on the Championship game, and we’re pumped to bring this historic event to the Alamodome. On a personal note, I started my wrestling career in San Antonio, specifically at the Alamodome. This was my very first Royal Rumble. The city, the fans – San Antonio and the state of Texas helped shape my career.”

San Antonio was announced as one of eight cities hosting an XFL team at a press conference on July 24 in Arlington, TX.

“We are proud to partner with Mayor Nirenberg and the Alamodome to bring our inaugural championship to this great city,” said XFL President Russ Brandon. “San Antonio knows how to host big events, and it will be exciting to see the League’s two best teams come together here to celebrate the XFL.”

“San Antonio is the perfect spot for the XFL’s inaugural championship game, and we are more than ready to host this exciting event,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg. “From the Alamo to the Riverwalk to the city’s burgeoning culinary scene, XFL fans will have an array of fantastic entertainment options for championship weekend in San Antonio.”     

“The Alamodome is built for sports’ biggest championships, from Final Fours to bowl games, so hosting the XFL title game here is a perfect fit,” said Steve Zito, Interim Assistant Executive Director for San Antonio’s Convention Sports & Facilities Department. “For 30 years, the Dome has been home to many of football’s biggest moments and memories, and we couldn’t be happier to host so many more on one of the sport’s biggest stages.”

Additional details for the XFL Championship Game, including ticket information, will be announced later.
