XFL 2001 Archive

XFLXFL 1.0 was born on 3 Feb 2000, and died on 10 May 2001. In that short time, the football league was formed and eight teams played one full 10 game season.

Created by the wrestling guru Vince McMahon, the mastermind behind the success of the WWE, the XFL was promoted to be "Smashmouth Football", and the on field product was designed to be fan-friendly.

This site was the unofficial home to XFL fans. Today, the files from 2000/2001 remain as an archive, dedicated to the fans of the XFL.
