On the heels of Tuesday's NHL expansion announcement, Seattle was announced as one of the eight inaugural cities to begin play when the new XFL football league kicks off in 2020.

Luck will join 710 ESPN Seattle's Bob, Groz and Tom at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday to talk about the XFL in Seattle. It opened with the Governor of New Jersey, who introduced Vince McMahon.

All eight XFL teams will have the same roster budget. He said it's been 20 years since the original XFL was announced, and a lot of things have changed since then. Vince spoke of the use of digital and social media.

But Luck said at his press conference today that the XFL has big ambitions and isn't afraid of a big challenge. Luck spoke about former players, coaches, and medical professionals about modifying the game so that it's familiar yet unique. He wants a crisp game that takes less than three hours.

That appearance was probably planned by Huawei , though, as that is probably the reason why the company handed that phone to Mr. The Huawei Nova 4 is expected to be powered by the Kirin 980 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.


Luck said the games will feature a shorter play clock compared to the National Football League and conclude in less than three hours. Luck says they want to listen to fans and say they already have great ideas from them.

Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced. He said there will be an app that will serve as the central hub for the league.

All of the XFL cities already have National Football League teams except for St. Louis. An 80,000-seat venue like MetLife Stadium is going to be tough to fill, or even come close to filling, and tens of thousands of empty seats run the risk of making the XFL look bush league. The league's opening weekend will arrive one year after the Alliance of American Football kicks off on February 9, 2019.
