XFL Cancels ‘Local Activation’ Events This Week Due To Hurricane Ian

Last week XFL Las Vegas head coach Rod Woodson appeared on two shows and said this week that the XFL would release team names and logos. Things were all going according to plan, that is, until Hurricane Ian.

The XFL has sent notifications to fans invited to these teams’ planned Happy Hours and Lunches. Telling them the events are canceled for this week.

“Due to the forecasted Hurricane Ian anticipated to hit the Southeast later this week we have made the decision to postpone our planned local activations. We will be looking to reschedule them in the near future and will contact you once a new date has been arranged. The XFL is a league with 8 teams, we were planning events in multiple markets.  Out of consideration for the affected areas, we will look to do this at a better time for all of our teams.”

So far, we have heard of events in San Antonio, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Houston. Nothing official for DC, St Louis, Orlando, and Arlington. It looks like fans will have to wait another week to hear XFL team names and logos. It looks like the league was trying to correlate these events with the announcement of the team names and logos. Which was expected to drop on Wednesday.

Right now, Hurricane Ian is a Category 3 storm. It will hit Florida’s west coast in the next 24 hours. With official landfall sometime Wednesday evening. In its path is Orlando. Home of one of the eight XFL franchises. That is why the XFL elected to punt this week’s announcement to next week.
