AAF: Alliance of American Football - Wikipedia XFL: XFL (2020) - Wikipedia The AAF has already announced 5 of 8 teams and their head coaches: Atlanta - Georgia State Stadium - Brad Childress Memphis - Liberty Bowl - Mike Singletary Orlando - Spectrum Stadium - Steve Spurrier Phoenix - Sun Devil Stadium - Rick Neuheisel Salt Lake City - Rice Eccles Stadium - Dennis Erickson Speculation for the remaining three includes San Diego; St. Louis; Portland, OR; San Antonio; and Birmingham, AL. The AAF seems to be pretty well put together at this point being run by Bill Polian and funded by the Ebersols and Keith Rabois. Games will be on CBS and CBS Sports Network along with a possible streaming app; the XFL hasn't announced anything yet, but speculation is they'll utilize the WWE infrastructure. The AAF will begin play the week after this coming Super Bowl; XFL in 2020. It's a little strange that McMahon has jumped into the game so late. Yes, he made the big splash announcement a few months ago, but I don't think he had much planned at that point. The AAF, on the other hand, has been in the works for a few years. McMahon and Dick Ebersol are apparently chums, so, at least to me, it's odd that they aren't working together again. I can only guess McMahon's thought process there. Perhaps he didn't want to abandon his XFL project for good and concluded it was now or never for an attempted comeback. Or maybe he was never invited to invest, he's upset about it, and wants to spoil the party. (I think the former is more likely.) Whatever the case may be, we're going to go from zero football in the Spring to two competing leagues by 2020, and I couldn't be happier to have more football.
