The XFL’s inaugural season will open Feb. 8th with a game between the D.C. Defenders and Seattle Dragons in Washington, according to a full schedule the league released Tuesday morning.
The game will be televised on ABC.
Each of the XFL’s eight teams have been divided into two divisions.
They will play five home and five away games between Feb. 8th and April 12th, followed by one round of two playoff games April 18-19 and a championship game on April 26th.
The schedule was devised in part to work around the NFL’s winter and spring events. The opening weekend is one week after Super Bowl LIV, and the XFL championship game will take place on the Sunday after the NFL’s 2020 draft.
While dropping the schedule, they decided to drop AB’s name into the mix.
