Prediction: XFL will be rebranded

Post by Arlo83 » Sat Feb 01, 2020 1:16 am

I think after season 1 they will rebrand the league with a new name. I think it was important for Vince to use the name XFL to get ppl talking but once the league is up and running which will be successful It will be time for a new name and retiring the XFL name and moving on from its history. Thoughts? Name suggestions?

If the league is successful you don’t change the name

Would cost millions to rebrand. Not going to happen.
Fan of the XFL from the beginning. You may remember me from the original XFLboard.

Not gonna happen.

There is one plausible scenario I could see: the league buys the AFL trademarks in the arena football bankruptcy and we get "NFL vs. AFL" again like we had in the 60s, where the A doesn't mean anything. But that is a severe longshot, and the only way I see it is if the ratings and attendance are horrible... and I don't suspect it.

XFL is, most likely, here to say.

That’s just silly. You don’t spend millions of dollars and countless man hours on name recognition just to throw that out the window.

I wrote about this back in 2018 on this site.

Vince McMahon filed two trademarks back in 2017. The United Football League and the UrFL, as in ‘your football league’. The XFL was almost not the XFL.

The only chance that the XFL gets rebranded is if Alpha Entertainment sells the league and the new ownership rebrands it.

I did not know that... that's an interesting wrinkle. I wonder if Ebersol's pitch to buy the XFL brand forced Vince's hand.

We might be dealing with a UFL revival instead of the XFL!
