Here's the full list of the 8 XFL cities and their venues

The eight teams for the inaugural season of the XFL. XFL

In a major announcement this afternoon, the XFL revealed all eight teams that will compete in their upcoming 2020 relaunch, as well as plenty of new details for the alternative football league.

"Combined these markets comprise almost a quarter of the nation's population", said XFL commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck at a news conference held at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

Luck said more than 30 cities expressed interest in hosting XFL teams. Louis, Seattle and Washington also will field teams. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon stated that he would spend $100 million on the league but that nothing close to what he will end up spending.

"We believe that St. Louisans will take to this new brand of reimagined football as much as they have taken to well, every WWE event that's ever been held in St. Louis", said Kitty Ratcliffe, president of Explore St. Louis, during the news conference. The XFL's Dallas franchise will play its games at Globe Life Park in Arlington. "And our research indicates that fans want more football, and we intend to provide it to them".

Kid Rock pulled from Nashville Christmas Parade following TV outburst
He was immediately reproached by "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy . "People need to calm down, get less politically correct", Rock said on the show.

McMahon is "personally funding" the new leaugue. XFL domain names for several other cities have reportedly been registered, hinting at possible future expansion. He mentioned the hundreds of players that get cut from the National Football League and they will be invited to try out for the XFL. But to the dismay of fans across the region, the Rams moved back to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.

Vince McMahon's XFL announced that the following cities will host teams and also announced the stadiums the teams will play in. Teams will play a 10-game regular-season schedule and two-round playoffs in the months immediately following the National Football League season.

McMahon's league played one season in 2001 and then was disbanded.
