XFL announces eight teams, cities and stadiums for its return in 2020

XFL Commissioner & CEO Oliver Luck

McMahon's league played one season in 2001 and then was disbanded.

The XFL will launch in 2020 on February 8 and 9, which is the weekend after Super Bowl LIV.

The other host cities include New York (MetLife Stadium), Dallas (Globe Life Park), Houston (TDECU Stadium), Los Angeles (StubHub Center), Seattle (Century Link Field), Tampa Bay (Raymond James Stadium), and Washington D.C. (Audi Field).

As CBS Sports first reported in January, the controversial professional league, which originated as a joint venture between WWE and NBC, is set for a 2020 reboot, complete with eight league-owned franchises.

The XFL hopes to deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including fast-paced games and a family friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

University led by Ignatieff forced to relocate out of Hungary
Ignatieff said the school established educational programs with New York's Bard College to comply with the rule. Earlier this year, Open Society Foundations, Soros' main funding network, was also forced to leave Hungary .

In October, XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck said the league had no plans to resurrect original team names and identities. They want a smooth in game flow, limiting timeouts, and simplifying rules. He also said they've taken input from fans and some of their best ideas have come from them.

All eight XFL teams will have the same roster budget.

Luck will join 710 ESPN Seattle's Bob, Groz and Tom at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday to talk about the XFL in Seattle. Player salaries will be "very competitive", and rosters will be drawn from all available players, including those who have been cut from National Football League teams, Luck said.

McMahon sold WWE shares worth $100 million to bankroll the XFL's relaunch.

The XFL will begin play in spring 2020.
