WHY REIMAGINE AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR SPORT?
Football fans have grown tired of the current state of football. We are given a game that lacks rhythm and has been overtaken by commercials, timeouts, complex rules and analysis. Reimagining the game doesn’t mean we’re changing the basics: You’ll still see 11 vs. 11 football we all know and love. You will see it played on a 100 yard field with 10 yard end zones. You will see players fight every play, 4 downs at a time. But, we will take football back to the game it was meant to be - one of the most intense, thrilling, crowd erupting experiences in the world.
HOW ARE WE DOING IT?
You don’t accomplish anything in football unless you work hard and as a team. That’s why Commissioner Luck has tapped many of football’s most elite minds and luminaries for their input and recommendations, convening multiple meetings of his Football Reimagined Committee (FRC). We are having conversations with Super Bowl coaches, legendary athletes, and sports-medicine and technology leaders. Through their guidance, our extensive research, and live testing we will produce a faster, more entertaining brand of football.
WHAT WILL THE XFL LOOK LIKE WHEN IT LAUNCHES?
Faster, with more plays, fewer interruptions and zero gimmicks.
We’re sifting through all the recommendations we’ve received to improve the game, whether they’ve come from fans like you, or those who’ve devoted their lives to this sport. Bottom line: every element of the game is under review to see where improvements should be made, and we plan to field-test each potential change before accepting it as a component of the new XFL.
