XFL announces its ceasing all operations immediately

Field Yates of ESPN is reporting via Twitter that it was announced today during a news conference with XFL COO Jeffery Pollack that the league is ceasing all of its operations immediately, and will not be returning for the 2021 season.

It was also noted that all employees of the XFL have been laid off.

We reported last month the XFL shut down the remainder of their 2020 season in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.  However, the league also did specifically state they were committed to the 2021 season and future years.
