First, our own Konnor Fulk reached out to the new co-owner of the XFL Dany Garcia and asked if some of the old XFL staff will be returning. She said
Absolutely agree.— Dany Garcia (@DanyGarciaCo) August 3, 2020
Later ESPN’s Kevin Seifert had a chance to talk to Garcia and ask if they plan on returning for the 2021 season.
“Plan is to play in 2021, she said, possibly in a bubble.”
Spoke w/ @DanyGarciaCo, one of three investors buying the XFL. Plan is to play in 2021, she said, possibly in a bubble. Garcia will hold an executive role with the league. Asked about other leadership, she noted “excellent” people who are or were in place for XFL 2.0.— Kevin Seifert (@SeifertESPN) August 3, 2020
We have reported earlier plans to potentially play a 12-week tournament in a host city for the 2021 season. Houston seems to be the viable option at this point. It looks like all systems, at this point, is a go for a 2021 XFL season.
It should also be noted that Dany Garcia is the first woman ever to own a sports league. It was Garcia’s idea behind purchasing the XFL in the first place.
We will be covering all the news regarding the reboot of XFL 3.0.
