STAMFORD, Conn., (February 7, 2020) -- The XFL and Boom Sports (formerly Boom
Fantasy) today announced the launch of PlayXFL, a free-to-play mobile gaming app
that offers eligible fans the chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and other prizes
each week during the 2020 season.

Fans who download the PlayXFL app from the Apple App Store or Google Play can play
along whether they’re at an XFL game or watching from home.

The PlayXFL app will offer two free prediction games to fans throughout its first season.

The first game is a jackpot-style score prediction contest in which fans predict the exact
score of selected XFL matchups each week. In weeks 1 and 3-10, fans who predict the
exact score of 2 games correctly will win (or split) a $25,000 prize. In week 2, fans who
predict the exact score of 3 games correctly will win (or split) a $500,000 prize. During
the playoffs (semifinals and championship), fans who predict the exact score of 3
games correctly will win (or split) a $1,000,000 prize. In addition, top finishers will share
$1,000 in guaranteed prizes each week.

In the second game, fans attending XFL games who have downloaded the free PlayXFL
app can opt-in to play a 4-Question Pick’em contest pertaining to the game they are
attending for the chance to win prizes, including merchandise and tickets, from the
applicable home team. Contests will be available only to fans inside venues via
geolocation technology.

“We’re excited to team with Boom Sports and provide our fans with free gameplay and a
chance to win cash prizes,” said Jeffrey Pollack, President and COO of the XFL.
“PlayXFL will bring our fans inside the game and add even more fun to the viewing

“Boom believes deeply that games can make sports more entertaining for fans,” said
Stephen A. Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Boom Sports. “We are thrilled to partner
with a league in the XFL that wants to invest in gaming and its fans accordingly.”
