The XFL and commissioner Oliver Luck announced Wednesday the eight team names and logos for the new league, which will debut in 2020.
The XFL draft is scheduled for October while the first regular-season games are planned for Feb. 8, 2020, the weekend after Super Bowl LIV.
Here's more on each team:
The Renegades will be coached and managed by former Oklahoma boss Bob Stoops. They'll play their home games at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, home of MLB's Texas Rangers.
The XFL announced in February that former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator and Stanford assistant Pep Hamilton will be D.C.'s head coach. The Defenders will reside in Audi Field, which also houses D.C. United of MLS.
Veteran coach June Jones was tabbed to lead the Houston XFL franchise. Jones has experience in the NFL (Falcons, Oilers, and Lions assistant) and the CFL (Hamilton Tiger-Cats), but is best known for his nine-year stint as Hawaii's head coach from 1999-2007. The Roughnecks will play their home games at TDECU Stadium.
Dignity Health Sports Park, formerly the StubHub Center, will house the Wildcats (it's also home to the Los Angeles Chargers until 2020). Former Green Bay Packers assistant Winston Moss was named the team's head coach and general manager in February.
The Guardians will share MetLife Stadium with the New York Giants and New York Jets, though the inaugural XFL season won't interfere with the NFL schedule. Kevin Gilbride, a former Chargers head coach and assistant for multiple NFL squads, will coach and manage the new franchise.
Jonathan Hayes, previously the Cincinnati Bengals' tight ends coach for the last 16 years, was named head coach and general manager of St. Louis in February. The BattleHawks will play their home games at The Dome at America's Center, which housed the Rams from 1995-2015.
True to his ties out west, former Seattle Seahawks quarterback and NFL assistant Jim Zorn will coach the Dragons. Their home games will take place at CenturyLink Field.
Raymond James Stadium, which also houses South Florida and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will be the site of Vipers home games beginning in 2020. Former Chicago Bears boss Marc Trestman, a two-time CFL Coach of the Year, will lead the Vipers.
