Here's the full list of the 8 XFL cities and their venues

The St. Louis team will play in The Dome at America's Center, where the St. Louis Rams played in downtown St. Louis.

Not only did they hype the announcement months ago, but now that we know the eight cities which will host the eventual XFL teams, their strategy might be coming together.

But the new XFL, which still has two years to prepare for competition with the NFL and the newly formed Alliance of American Football among other leagues, took a step toward reality on Wednesday with the reveal of its eight teams and stadiums.

Vince McMahon's original XFL lasted one season of play.

"We are proud to restore the River City's rightful place among pro football cities and we will not stop there", the XFL said in a statement. The XFL will begin play in 2020. For now, the Jets and Giants better prepare themselves for some new offseason tennants.

The XFL hopes to deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including fast-paced games and a family friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

Gareth Southgate's men will face the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Kosovo in their five-nation group. The winners and runners up from each of the twelve groups will progress to the 24-team tournament.

Luck said the league will have fewer stoppages, ie less stall and more ball. The league will begin play on February 8, 2020, the weekend after that year's Super Bowl.

The commissioner also said that he expects most of the players to come from the large pool of guys who can't stick on an National Football League roster. It is easy at this point to wave off the XFL as the wild idea of a rich man, especially when it keeps talking about innovations without actually saying what they are, but it aims to employ a lot of football players.

Luck also announced plans for a shorter play clock in the XFL, while games will be played in under three hours and TV timeouts will be limited.

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon announced in January that the revived XFL would launch in 2020 with eight teams of 40 players and a 10-game schedule. The team's name was not announced.

Individual tickets are not on sale, but anyone interested in being an XFL fan can sign-up to be a season ticket holder on the XFL site.
