What is the XFL?

    If you're a fan of American football, you know all about the NFL, which stands for the National Football League. But what is the XFL? Founded in 2018 by Vince McMahon, the XFL is a professional football league that aims to provide fans with a fresh and exciting take on the sport. The XFL's inaugural season kicked off in 2020 with eight teams from across the United States - four teams in the North division and four in the South. The league features a mix of established players and up-and-coming young guns, providing fans with an opportunity to see some of the best football players in the country.

    The XFL strives to be more fast paced than the NFL and has implemented many new rules. 

For example, kickoffs are taken from the 30-yard line instead of the 35-yard line to encourage returns.The XFL has eliminated the traditional extra point kick after a touchdown in favor of a three-tiered system where teams can score one, two, or three points.
