Washington Gov. Expected To Restrict Gatherings, Dragons Impacted

We have been reporting on the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), potentially impacting the XFL. Last week a part-time concession vendor who worked the Feb. 22 Seattle Dragons game at CenturyLink Field tested positive for the coronavirus.

As the virus is spreading across the US, states are beginning to take more aggressive action. To combat an outbreak in New Rochelle New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday. They are creating a “containment area” around a community to stop the spread.

According to the Seattle Times, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is announcing today a drastic move to slow the spread of the coronavirus in his state.

“Gov. Jay Inslee is expected Wednesday to restrict gatherings of more than 250 people in King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties, a move aimed at sports, concerts, and other cultural events.”

King Country, one of the counties affected by the restriction, is home to CenturyLink Field and the Seattle Dragons. The Dragons play the LA Wildcats at CenturyLink Field this Sunday at 6 PM ET.

The XFL is currently scrambling for options on where to play the game. With a restriction of 250 people. A professional football game would not work in this scenario.

Games include the players, coaching staff, TV, and medical personal. That would push it over the 250 restriction.

Another option is to move to a different location. The XFL could keep the game in Washington just in another non-restricted county. Those games could be played at a University or high school. The XFL could also move the game to LA and play at Dignity Health Sports Park.

    If the game gets moved to another location that is too far for ticketholders to travel, will they be reimbursed?
