XFL 2020 - Live on BT Sport in the UK

Week Two schedule here

The XFL is back and will be shown live on BT Sport throughout the 2020 season.

The XFL is a professional American football league owned by WWE’s Vince McMahon.

It is the successor to the original XFL, which was controlled by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and NBC, and ran for a single season in 2001.

The league will follow a similar structure as the original XFL did in 2001, with eight teams, centrally owned and operated by the league and spread across the United States in markets currently or recently represented by a National Football League (NFL) franchise, competing in a ten-game season and a two-week postseason.

The games will be shown on Fox and ABC/ESPN in America and shown live on BT Sport in the UK.

Curt Menefee (host of Fox NFL Sunday) and Joel Klatt will serve as Fox’s lead XFL broadcast team.

Fox also auditioned Greg Olsen for the second XFL broadcast team in October 2019 by having him call play-by-play for an NFL contest during his bye week from the Carolina Panthers and eventually hired him as color commentator for the second broadcast team, which will feature Kevin Burkhardt on play-by-play.

ESPN and ABC’s top team will feature Steve Levy, Greg McElroy, Tom Luginbill, and Dianna Russini, and their second team will be Tom Hart, Joey Galloway, and Pat McAfee.
