The XFL is built on the principle of Fan Above All. We’re proud to offer ticketing solutions for every kind of football fan, including season tickets, group experiences, family packs, and single game tickets. To learn more about how you can enjoy the Defenders gameday experience in person, visit Ticket Central.

Don’t forget: your mobile device is your ticket! You can now view, transfer, or sell your tickets using the new XFL Official App on iOS and Android devices. To manage your tickets simply download/open the app, click “Tickets” at the bottom of the screen, select your team, and log-in to your account!

Be sure to access your tickets prior to gameday and keep these important mobile ticketing tips in mind:

  • Please do not screenshot your mobile ticket! The XFL is implementing a rotating barcode so a screenshot of your ticket will NOT get you or your friends into the stadium 
  • Apple users - View your tickets in the XFL app prior to gameday and add the tickets to your digital Wallet 
  • Android users - View your tickets before heading to the stadium for easy entry on gameday
