As reported earlier this week, St. Louis is rumored to be one of the markets that will be part of the return of the football league in 2020. The XFL has yet to announce a television/media rights deal for the 2020 season.
It was announced back in March that Charlie Ebersol, son of longtime sports-media exec Dick Ebersol, would be launching the Alliance of American Football next year ahead of the XFL’s planned return. They have already secured TV rights with CBS.
