The other day, XFL co-owner Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson took the stage at Disney Upfront to drop major information. The news was that the league has signed an exclusive five-year agreement in partnership with ABC along with The Walt Disney Company to distribute their content across the world. (Houston Roughnecks)
In the days leading up to the big announcement, we got teasers from co-owners of both. One of them alluded to the possibility that the XFL would operate out of their respective markets, rather than using the hub model.
The XFL has announced earlier in the month that it will use Texas as its headquarters, however it was anticipated that Houston would not be part of the mix.Well it seems like those who love the Roughnecks would be pleased with the news. Mark Berman of local FOX affiliates informs us about the University of Houston and TDECU Stadium will be the venue for XFL games once it returns in 2023.

After all of the head coaches are in the public domain and the broadcasting program has been released There’s just one thing to be considered. The places which the XFL will use in 2023. We’ve found some of them but it seems like we’ll be able to include Houston to the list of locations.( Houston Roughnecks Schedule)
If the Roughnecks return, it could be with a fresh style and appearance. The trademarks for the principal and secondary logos was each contested. The issue is a problem that should be easily resolved. The league can also decide to change its name. However, you’ll eliminate the appeal of having a team that is undefeated within your own league.
