With the final XFL Summer Showcase complete. The eight XFL franchises are gearing up for team name announcements and the signing of players.
One issue that needs to be finalized before any practicing can begin is where will they practice. One team, XFL DC, is in the middle of that process now.
Initially, we heard the XFL DC franchise was going to practice near RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. But it seems like those plans may have changed.
XFL DC Team President Erik Moses, XFL Senior Vice President, Football Operations Doug Whaley and Head Coach Pep Hamilton has made the rounds looking at a couple of other potential practice facilities.
Those locations were Bowie State University and the University of Maryland. XFL DC will be playing their games at Audi Field.
