Last month the XFL took major steps forward towards their 2023 return when they revealed the host cities and venues. The XFL Showcases are complete for the year, and the league is really ramping up towards their first game under the new ownership group.
During the XFL Townhall, co-owners Dany Garcia and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson mentioned that they would be looking to the fans to help shape the league. At the time they couldn’t share more details, but said we’d know more in a couple weeks.
Today, it seems we have some more insight on what they meant. The XFL has just announced the launch of what they’re calling ‘The Huddle’.
Today, we're launching #TheHuddle, a members-only digital community for you, our fans, to share input and feedback via surveys and exclusive content so that we can build tomorrow's league together.
Connect. Share. Be Heard. Join The Huddle.
Space is limited.

The Huddle is set to be a members-only digital fan community where the XFL will look for feedback from the fans. To join, just head over to thehuddle.xfl.com and fill out a quick survey. From there you’ll need to verify your account and then you’re in.
In the XFL’s email announcement on The Huddle, they had the following details to share:

The XFL has something similar in the leadup to 2020, which they called the ‘Football Advisory Network’. We expect that the surveys will be on par with what we saw then. In fact, when we signed up it had remembered all of our details from the prior season.
In the signup survey the leagues gauges fans sports interests, including Fan Controlled Football and the USFL.
With the XFL host cities known, many have speculated that fans may have a say in some of, if not all, of the new team names. With ‘The Huddle’ now live, it may be worth joining to see where you can let your voice be heard.
