There Won’t Be A Formal Arrangement Between The XFL & CFL At This Time


Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and RedBird Capital Partners bought all of the assets of Alpha Entertainment LLC, the parent company of the XFL.

The league was supposed to re-launch next year, but the league announced the season is on hold while having discussions with the CFL (Candian Football League). The belief is that this could lead to a merger. 

The collaboration won’t happen as the CFL issued the following: 

“Our talks with the XFL, exploring the potential for collaboration and innovation, have been positive and constructive.

While we remain open to finding new ways to work together in the future, we and our XFL counterparts have jointly decided to not pursue any formal arrangements at this time.

We at the CFL are now squarely focused on preparing for August 5th and the start of our  2021 regular season, which will culminate December 12 with the playing of the 108th Grey Cup in Hamilton, Ontario.

We are looking forward to this year and  a bright future for our league.”
