The XFL has released an official statement on the closure of the AAF:
“We have said all along the success or failure of other leagues will have no impact on our ability to deliver high-quality, fast-paced, professional football. The XFL is well-funded, we have time before kick-off to execute our business plan, and we will soon announce a national broadcast and cable TV schedule that makes it easy for fans to find our games consistently every weekend when we launch next February. There is no doubt that avid football fans want more and we’re excited to get going in 2020.”
In other news related to the untimely demise of the AAF, it looks as if the XFL may be interested in acquiring a variety of the AAF’s assets, according to Darren Rovell. This story is still developing, and we will keep you in the look as we learn more.
