Everyone believed the XFL was done for good after the league filed for bankruptcy earlier in the year, but that’s simply not the case.
The coronavirus pandemic unfortunately caused the league to pull the plug on the league roughly midway through the season, with declining attendance at games having been an issue as well. Still, the league did have some success early on, and it appeared to have established a solid framework to build on. However, many buried the league for dead when they declared they were bankrupt.
But hold on one second, as it’s not that simple.
The league can still start up again in the future, if the powers that be such as CEO Vince McMahon and others can pony up the capital to do so. And a recent quote has us believing it may indeed happen.
Apparently, former Orlando Apollos head coach Steve Spurrier has expressed interest in coaching in the league again.
Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. If Spurrier’s saying that, it’s likely because he knows the league has a chance at returning next year, so stay tuned. We’d love to see it, as we thoroughly enjoyed the games.
