The XFL and USFL plan to merge and begin play next year.
I haven't seen this talked about yet, but thought it was worth throwing up. Admittedly haven't watched much of the XFL since they came back, but this is actually really important/interesting due to the NFL's relationship with the XFL. There's been quite a bit discussed over the past year about how the NFL and XFL want to work together to grow the game of football, and the XFL has been used as a testing ground for new rules that could potentially be implemented in the NFL.
Also, the NFL-AFL merger was obviously incredibly important in getting to where we are today. I'm not suggesting this is equally important, but at the same time I guess you never know what these things can become, especially if you might have the support of the NFL.
If a merger is approved, that means they will have teams in the following cities:
- Houston (x2)
- Las Vegas
- New Jersey (Ironically plays in Canton)
- New Orleans
- San Antonio
- St. Louis
