Our own XFL insider Jai Nokes got some clarification on the XFL’s statement.
So as it stands right now, all of the XFL’s energy is going into talks with the CFL. There are a lot of moving parts and this is a fluid situation.
We should have more of an idea of the 2022 XFL season in the coming months once a formal plan is in place between the XFL and CFL.
Both leagues are dealing with the aftermath of shutdowns due to COVID-19. The CFL is planning on playing in 2021, training camps start in May with games in June. The statements today did not reference the possibility of a merger, just talking.
We will keep you posted on XFL News Hub as this story develops.
