Overall, these are great numbers for a start-up league if you ask me. It was early in the season that we reported that the XFL had already surpassed the AAF in ticket sales revenue and now we’re seeing what that looks like. There was no doubt going into the season that St. Louis was going to be a huge market for the XFL, the fans have embraced the BattleHawks so much that they have opened up more sections in the The Dome for their week 7 match-up against the Los Angeles Wildcats.
We’ll keep you posted as the season moves forward, stay tuned. How do you think the XFL is doing? Do you think we’ll see the league change some of the markets or stadiums next years for some of the teams based on attendance? Let us know down in the comments below or join the conversation on Discord.
