When we learned that the two would go their separate ways we also learned that the XFL would officially be postponing their return to 2023.
Naturally, this left a lot of fans upset and worried that the league they loved may not ever return.
Yesterday, Dany Garcia and Gerry Cardinale (RedBird Capital Founder) spoke at Sportico’s Invest in Sports event. When the news started making the rounds, many XFL fans were hopeful that we may get some insight into the league.
.@DanyGarciaCo, part-owner of the @XFL pushes to think bigger. Don’t just own a sports team, own the league.
Although there wasn’t anything notable in regards to the return of the league, we did get a hint that news is coming in the next few months. In response to a question on this very subject Cardinale said:
You’ll be hearing from us with an increasing crescendo in the next many months because we’re getting ready to start debuting some of the things that we’ve been working on”
As we know, the XFL ownership group has been in many locked door meetings over the last year and change. So far they’ve been very good at keeping everything under wraps, but it sounds like we’re finally going to start hearing some news.
We understand that some fans are anxious for some information, but if we look back at 2020 were still kind of on track. It wasn’t until roughly a year before kickoff before we really started hearing anything of importance. Now, if we still don’t have anything more than what we have now in October of 2022, then I’d be concerned.
All in all, this is actually for the better. When we look at the graveyard of past spring leagues, they all usually have one thing in common; lack of planning. One thing that you can’t fault the new XFL ownership for is exactly that. They know they need to take their time to ensure that they can keep the magic that we say in the first half of the XFL’s 2020 season.
When do you think we’ll hear news from the XFL? What do you think they’ll announce first? Let us know down in the comments below or join the conversation on Discord.
