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.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck (father of Andrew Luck) will serve as Commissioner of the league, and was also on-hand to push the XFL's use of next generation technology, a simplification of the rules, an increased focus on player safety as well as speeding up the game overall. The team's name was not announced.

"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. Luck says they want to listen to fans and say they already have great ideas from them.

Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced.

Los Angeles, the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area and Dallas were among the eight cities and venues chosen to be the home sites when the XFL launches its inaugural season in February 2020.

That league also has eight teams, mostly in cities that don't now host NFL teams: Birmingham, Ala., San Antonio, Orlando, and San Diego among them.
