What are the 8 XFL teams?

Similar to the USFL — which returned to action in 2022 after being dormant for years — the XFL games today schedule each week will feature eight teams. It includes teams that are holdovers from the previous season like the Seattle Sea Dragons, DC Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, and St. Louis Battlehawks.

There are also a few teams that kept their prior names but were moved to different cities, like the Arlington Renegades, Orlando Guardians, and Vegas Vipers. Plus an all-new team in the San Antonio Brahmas.

There will be 43 games on the XFL schedule in 2023. A total of 40 will be regular-season matchups, then the two aforementioned playoff games, then the season comes to a close with the most important of them all, the 2023 XFL championship game in May.

Who was the last XFL champion?

The inaugural XFL championship was played two years after the NFL alternative was founded, in 2001. The “Million Dollar Game” — which it was known as for obvious reasons — was played between the San Franciso Demons and the Los Angeles Xtreme. Led by league MVP and NFL veteran Tommy Maddox, the Xtreme won dominantly, 38-6.

The Los Angeles Xtreme was the first and only XFL champion after the first incarnation of the league ended following the first season, and the rebooted version was canceled midway through due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
