All eight XFL teams will have the same roster budget.

The announcement was made by XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during a press conference that included representatives from all eight markets. McMahon also said the game will be played faster-in about two hours-and more "fan-centric".

They are calling it, "football reimagined". The XFL returns on February 8th and 9th of 2020. He stressed a shorter play clock and a modified officiating protocol. They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts. Players will be tested for performance-enhancing drugs. This is why the leaders of the CFL players association were, during Grey Cup week, none-too-subtly referring to the changing landscape of pro football when they were discussing upcoming negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement. Player salaries will be "very competitive", and rosters will be drawn from all available players, including those who have been cut from National Football League teams, Luck said. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal. He said the goal was to establish a true partnership with cities instead of just renting a building.

Individual tickets are not on sale, but anyone interested in being an XFL fan can sign-up to be a season ticket holder on the XFL site.

Team names, uniforms, and personnel won't be announced until next year.
