The games will be played at the following stadiums: Dallas (Globe Life Park in Arlington), Houston (TDECU Stadium), Los Angeles (StubHub Center), New York (MetLife Stadium), Seattle (Century Link Field), St. Louis (The Dome At America's Center), Tampa Bay (Raymond James Stadium) and Washington D.C.

- A new sports team is slithering into town next year: the Tampa Bay Vipers.

The franchise's name was revealed along with those of the upstart football league's seven other teams on Wednesday morning. Unsure. There's not a lot of information from the league about these logos at this time. Luring all who challenge them into the jaws of defeat. Ready to strike February 2020: "The Tampa Bay Vipers", according to a tweet by XFL.

The XFL is owned by WWE owner Vince McMahon and hopes to learn from the successes, and failures, of the fledgling AAF that only lasted nine months before folding last spring.

State Department had approved the possible sale of 66 F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan, which Beijing considers a renegade province. Under Washington's "one-China" policy, the US government officially recognizes Beijing and not Taipei, while assisting Taiwan.

The XFL is slated to have its draft at some point in October.

In June, a test session was held, where ESPN and FOX producers got to see how the proposed rules will affect a broadcast.

The XFL will use a format similar to penalty shootouts in soccer. Their home games will take place at CenturyLink Field. The team with the most points at the end wins.

The Dragons, who will be coached by former Seahawks quarterback and coach Jim Zorn, will kick off their inaugural season on February 8, 2020 - one week after the conclusion of the Super Bowl.
