XFL Showcase Attendee List, Who Is Attending The Six Events

In 2023 we will watch as the XFL launches for a third time. However, first they need to locate the player pool to hold their crucial initial draft. That’s where the six player showcases come in. They will act as a way for XFL, and presumably NFL scouts to find diamonds in the rough. We have seen this model produce some names before. Who will be the break out players in 2023? Check out this list to get an early indication of who might be the names to watch in #XFL3.0.

Year Round Football in 2023

With every launch of a new league, comes new opportunities for players. Many fans often say things like “there isn’t enough talent to go around” or “these new leagues will affect the talent pool for the CFL”. While they might be right about the latter point, they couldn’t be more wrong about the first.

Every year around 700 players get the call from NFL teams on or shortly after draft day. Every year NFL and CFL rosters inflate for training camp, and without fail these rosters must be trimmed down to the league maximums for the season. This means that all around the same time we see hundreds of players suddenly looking for jobs.

This has always resulted in a pool of free agents. Some of which may not have played in any league for years at times. However that’s all about to change in 2023. In 2023 assuming some factors remain as they stand, we are heading toward a full calendar year of outdoor football thanks to the launch of the XFL.

The XFL in 2020 launched the week after the Super Bowl, which is a model many expect them to follow once again. Their season ran for a total of about 2-3 months. Meaning they will have completely wrapped up in May. In April the USFL kicks off season 2, assuming Fox doesn’t pull the plug. The USFL carries us into CFL season, which then overlaps with the NFL season. NFL carries us all the way full circle back to XFL season. Rinse and Repeat, rinse and repeat.

XFL Showcases:

With the highly anticipated launch of the XFL comes a series of XFL showcases. Six events, staged around the country to draw the best of the best free agent talents and put them on display for the XFL 3.0’s first season. Already less than a week away from the announcement many players from leagues around the world, and free agents alike will be chasing their dream in these showcases.

Today I bring to you a comprehensive list compiled with the help of the players themselves whether it be on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Reddit, or Discord. I sent out posts everywhere I could find in search of players looking to attend these showcases. More than 50 players responded, and the number is growing by the day.

Check out the list below, and familiarize yourself with the players who may be populating XFL rosters in 2023 and beyond thanks to these showcases.

    Hey how’s it going? My name is Bryant Snead from Birmingham,Alabama and I play defensive back. I last played for a Semi Pro team called the Alabama Blackhawks. I wanted to know if I can have my name placed on the XFL tryout showcase list. I really would love a opportunity to showcase my talents at the next level. If giving the chase you won’t regret it I promise. Thank You God Bless.

With that being said, I need you to DM me on twitter with the information from the article if you want to be added. I need all the info listed.
