The XFL season kickoff is a mere 25 days away. The Los Angeles Wildcats will open up their season on the road against the Houston Roughnecks at 2 PM on February 8th, one week after Super Bowl LIV.

The Wildcats will make their home debut at Dignity Health Sports Park on Sunday, February 16th, at 12 PM against the Dallas Renegades.

On Tuesday, XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck and Wildcats President Heather Brooks Karatz met with the LA media to disuss the upcoming season, the new rules that will be implemented, and answered questions.

As far as the new rules are concerned, there are new and exciting innovations that are creating a lot of buzz.

All of the new rules with video explanations can be found here.

I also broke down each of the 15 new rules on the Bleav In LA Football podcast, you can find the episode here.

Currently, all coaches and players of every team are in Houston, Texas for Training Camp. According to Commissioner Luck, the thought process behind having all teams in one location for training camp came down to making the product on the field the best that it could possibly be, come opening day. This is hard to accomplish for an upstart league, especially if each team is only practicing against its own units.

If all eight teams are able to have joint practices twice a week, the league is able to gauge where each team is at, and the coaching staffs can make adjustments in preparation for February 8th.

The Wildcats will return to Los Angeles at the end of January and the roster will be finalized at that time.

Tickets to home games start as low as $20.

In the coming weeks, we will be profiling each of the players so that you can get to know your Wildcats! Stay tuned.
