Normally this is the time of year where families travel all over the country to meetup and give thanks. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans have shifted a bit… to say the least. It was this time last year when the XFL officially revealed each teams game ball. This year, again… things are a bit different.
When all hope had seemed to fade that the XFL would return again, Dandy Garcia and Dwayne Johnson came out of the shadows to save the day. Today, in honor of Thanksgiving Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and XFL President Jeffrey Pollack sent a letter to the fans thanking them for their continued support.
As we look forward to seeing the new ownership group rebuild the league and bring it back to where it was earlier this spring, we love to see the engagement from the group to the fans. It may be a while longer until we can all get back to normal and enjoy a good ‘ol tailgate, but we’re thankful that the XFL is coming back!
You can read the leagues full letter to the fans below:
TO OUR BELOVED FANS OF THE XFL –
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of the year because it provides an opportunity to take inventory of all the great things in our lives. And YOU—our amazing XFL family—are surely at the top of our list!
We are so thankful to be stewards of a brand that people love, that gives you reason to root so hard your sides hurt, to jump to your feet no matter where you are in support of your favorite player and team. It’s a sense of pride that’s unmatched, and we’re filled with the greatest joy and appreciation that you’ve welcomed us to be a part of it.
We are working hard to bring you a league of culture, dedication, and passion among our players, coaches, and cities. No one will outwork us, and that includes everything we do—from fan engagement, to the merchandise, to the type of coaches and players we welcome, all the way to the cities in which we dig our cleats in.
This last year has been one of the most challenging and unprecedented periods we’ve all experienced, but it’s the 4th quarter, 4th down, with 2021 inches away, and we have so many exciting announcements and engagements coming down the road. We’re wishing you and your families good health and peace as we turn the page together.
For the Love of Football,
Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson & Jeffrey Pollack
