Statement issued by XFL on 12 March 2020:
Currently, the XFL will not be playing its regular-season games. However, all players will be paid their base pay and benefits for the 2020 regular season. All XFL ticket holders will be issued refunds or credit toward future games. The XFL is committed to playing a full season in 2021 and future years.
Clearly the league is not enthusiastic by this outcome, but they have deemed this decision necessary. We should be buoyed by the fact the XFL plans to continue in 2021.
We’d like to wish all XFL players, coaches, staff and fans the best, especially in relation to dealing with the Corona Virus pandemic.
