DraftKings have Confirmed XFL Contests will Begin 2/8, Additional Updates will come
Posted on January 12, 2020 by Gavin Hayes

As the season nears closer, the XFL seems to be making more and more press runs. First with the rule book, now with joint practices, things are starting to shape up. The most recent of this news comes from the fantasy football world.

In anticipation of the coming XFL season, DraftKings has announced that it will offer daily fantasy football contests to XFL fans throughout the course of the year. The announcement comes as no surprise, mainly because sportsbooks have already started to prepare for XFL gambling, or plan on preparing for the season after the NFL’s Super Bowl.

On January 10th on Twitter, the official DraftKings account responded to Twitter user @Cozy4041 that they would be having XFL contests this season and that those contests will begin on 2/8.

The XFL has also announced that plans for Fantasy Football are in the works and that with less than a month to go, they will be released shortly. While it is not known what these plans could offer, it has to be assumed it will be used as another revenue source for the league. Gambling and fantasy football are two things previous leagues, such as the AAF, never had access to. Something like gambling could propel the league’s life span and ability to fund growth.

So does anyone know if all that will be available will be daily fantasy or will there be season long leagues as well?
