Top 10 Cities that Deserve an XFL Team in the FutureSo the XFL is here... and so far so good. This new league is overall much better than the AAF ever was. If there’s a spring football league that would work this is it. I do wish there was more than 8 teams however. If they have a successful run I say adding 4 teams wouldn’t be an issue. Here’s some ideas where they should expand to. I know it’s early but if this league is successful they have to consider adding new teams
It makes sense. They have a decent fanbase for their sports teams. There’s also not a lot of support for the league up north. Chicago is one of the biggest markets without an XFL team. There’s potential for it to work
San Diego has been screwed over by the NFL who walked out and the AAF who folded on them. This new league has potential and San Diego has a passionate fanbase. Perhaps the XFL can win over the broken hearts of Chargers fans
Just because the NFL was dumb enough to leave, the XFL should not be. Should the 9th team.
Another large market that has shown they can support multiple franchises. Makes a lot of sense for them to get one. Could be a fantastic rivalry with LA if all goes well
Memphis has the Liberty Bowl and a Football audience already in place with the Memphis Tigers in college. Adding an XFL team could be a good counter to the Tennessee Titans in Nashville
Memphis had a team in the original XFL so they should have one
Would need a stadium. Unsure if the baseball stadium is suitable or desirable.
OKC is a city that doesn’t have a lot in terms of professional sports but they have the market for it. They support the Thunder and there’s a lot of support for the OU Sooners and OSU Cowboys. Giving them an XFL team would give these two fanbases something to unite them
The Carolina Panthers have drawn in some nice appeal plus they bring more southern representatives. The Carolinas know a thing about football just look at Clemson South Carolina or even North Carolina. It’s a football town alright
I'd like to see an XFL team in Charlotte.
Another city that has shown they can support a professional sports team. Remember in the AAF the Orlando Apollos were very successful and had a fair sized fanbase. Plus there’s Disney so that always brings in a crowd
Another city with passionate fans that love their Eagles. An XFL team would fit in well here and give some more support in the Northeast
They have a good amount of support for the Blazers and on top of that they also have Oregon and Oregon State both who are passionate fans. There’s enough space for them to have a team. It could be a good rivalry with Seattle
Well judging by their AAF team they weren’t exactly supportive of it. They might not be the best fit
I live near Pittsburgh, so I would like to see an XFL team in Steel City.
They could support it maybe. There’s a decent following in the area for other Arizona teams
After losing the Raiders this year, this city will be hungry for a football team
WLAF tried to go here. I'm sure Ohio State can rent the Shoe for 5 home games a year.
I'm from Michigan and would love to be able to go to some games. But I need teams in my area. Not going to fly across the country to go to a game.
Anybody but the lions
