THERE IS LOUD, AND THEN THERE IS SEATTLE LOUD. FOOTBALL FANS IN THE EMERALD CITY HAVE LONG HAD A REPUTATION FOR BRINGING THE NOISE. WE COULD HEAR THEM FROM 3,000 MILES AWAY, AND IT CONVINCED US THAT THE XFL NEEDED A PERMANENT HOME IN THE RUGGED NORTHWEST. SEATTLE IS A TECH-FORWARD, ENVIRONMENTALLY PROGRESSIVE, FUTURE-LEANING CITY. IT’S A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN REIMAGINE THE WORLD. WE WERE HARD-PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER PLACE TO REIMAGINE FOOTBALL IN 2020.
