5 top cities that should get XFL teams in 2020

Here are five US cities that would be great fits for the relaunch of the XFL.

1

Orlando, Florida

Orlando tops the list and already has the advantage of being part of the original XFL years ago. Their former team was the Orlando Rage, but Vince McMahon and officials may shy away from that name based on the state of pro sports these days. Still, Orlando is the only major city in Florida lacking a pro football team, so this could happen.

2

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Football is like a religion in OKC as fans associate with the Cowboys or Sooners in some form. Bringing a professional team to the area makes sense based on the size of the city, and the fact they already boast the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team. It seems like a win-win for the people in Oklahoma as well as the XFL in terms of prime locations.

St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis used to host a football team, but the Rams now are in Los Angeles. There's still plenty of opportunity to bring a team to this area, as they also have the Cardinals and Blues for professional sports. Fans would likely attend the games as there so they wouldn't have to pick between the Colts, Titans, and Chiefs. Book it for The Dome at America's Center!

4

Portland, Oregon

Portland is the home for one professional sports team at the moment: the Trail Blazers. They've been enjoying some success in the league and achieving playoff runs. Fans need more to root for, though, and a well marketed pro football squad could do the trick. There's 2.4 million people within the area and it could help the city immensely in terms of attracting future sports teams or ventures.

5

San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio, Texas makes the list and may have one foot in (or out of) the door already. They recently announced they'll have a professional team called the San Antonio Commanders, which starts up in 2019. Could this mean they're a "no go" for Vince McMahon's NFL? Two football teams would be tough, but the Los Angeles and New York areas are doing fine with that.
