XFL 2020 Cities Review: Los Angeles, California

The XFL is set to return February 8th & 9th, 2020, the weekend after the Superbowl. The league will be represented by eight cities. One of those cities is Los Angeles, California.

The other cities are Dallas, Texas; Houston, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; New York; Seattle, Washington; Tampa Bay, Florida & Washington D.C.

The Los Angeles XFL Franchise will be playing their games at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, which is currently the home of The NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers & MLS’ LA Galaxy. The NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers will be leaving Dignity Health Sports Park and moving to the new LA Stadium at Hollywood Park before the XFL’s initial season kicks off.

Dignity Health Sports Park is a 30,000 seat stadium sports complex located just fourteen miles south of downtown Los Angeles on the campus of California State University, in Dominguez Hills. It offers first-class amenities and premium seating, including 47 suites, 14 terraces, and a massive 5,100 square foot LED video display.

Los Angeles which is also known as The City Of Los Angeles or The City Of Angels and often known by its initials L.A. It is the second most populated city and metropolitan area, after New York City, in the US. It has a population of over 13.1 million residents. The city sprawls across a broad coastal plain situated between mountains and The Pacific Ocean.

The much larger Los Angeles County encompasses the city, and it contains some 90 other incorporated cities, including Beverly Hills, Pasadena & Long Beach. The county also includes two of the Channel Islands, Santa Catalina & San Clemente. Los Angeles is the famous home of Hollywood, a major center of the world of entertainment.

LA Pro Sports Teams

LA is home to several pro and college sports teams. The Greater Los Angeles Area has eleven professional sports teams:

  • Anaheim Ducks (NHL)
  • Los Angeles Angels (MLB)
  • Los Angeles Chargers (NFL)
  • Los Angeles Clippers (NBA)
  • Los Angeles Dodgers (MLB)
  • Los Angeles FC (MLS)
  • LA Galaxy (MLS)
  • Los Angeles Kings (NHL)
  • Los Angeles Lakers (NBA)
  • Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA)
  • Los Angeles Rams (NFL)

USC Trojans Football, UCLA Bruins Men’s Basketball, USC Trojans Baseball, USC Trojans Track & Field and Cal State Fullerton Titans Baseball are all historically premier organizations in college sports. Other major sports teams include UCLA Bruins Football, Pepperdine Waves Baseball, and formerly The Los Angeles Raiders & Los Angeles Aztecs.

Between them, these Los Angeles Area Sports Teams have won a combined 105 Championship Titles. Los Angeles Area colleges have produced upwards of 200 National Championship Teams, primarily from USC Trojans & UCLA Bruins of The Pac-12 Conference.

Summer Olympics

The 1932 & 1984 Summer Olympics were held in Los Angeles. In 2028, The City Of Los Angeles will be hosting The Olympics for the third time.

XFL’s Los Angeles Xtreme

LA is one of two cities to have hosted a team from the original XFL, the other coty being New York/New Jersey. The Los Angeles Xtreme was the champion of the original XFL in the league’s first and only season. The Los Angeles XFL Franchise will be in one of the most densely crowded sports markets in the United States. They are competing for sports dollars against two NHL Teams, two NBA Teams, at least three Major College Basketball Programs (UCLA, USC & Pepperdine) and in March & April, both The Galaxy & Los Angeles FC in MLS.

With major pro sports history and success in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, the need for a good XFL team in LA is a must. The pressure of winning, especially since the Los Angeles Xtreme won the only XFL Championship, great things are expected. And with what happened in the original XFL it is only a matter of time to find out if history can repeat itself.
