As you know by now the XFL suspended it’s season just five games into the season due to the spread of COVID-19. Yesterday, each franchise sent a note to 2021 season ticket depositors letting them know that the money would be refunded. They said that the reason was because they knew people needed cash in hand now. This led to speculation among many fans.
Well, just now it was revealed that the XFL has suspended its day-to-day operations effective immediately. As a result all team and league employees have been terminated. XFL employees will be paid through April 12th, along with their accrued PTO.
This is a huge blow for the league, so far there hasn’t been a comment on if the league still plans to return for a 2021 season, hold out for 2022 or throw in the towel. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more on this situation.
Let us know if you think the league will return down in the comments below or join the conversation on Discord.
