You can add the DC area to the list of cities that are expected to get an XFL team. The news broke earlier today via Pablo Maurer from The Athletic.
Maurer also said that the team would play at Audi Field, the home of DC United soccer team. The stadium fits roughly 20,000 fans.
The league will be announcing all eight teams and venues next week during a live stream across all XFL social media platforms.
The rumored cities so far are St. Louis, DC and Seattle.
BREAKING: The XFL is set to announce – likely next week – that it's going to put a franchise in DC and that they'll play at @AudiField. Details are still unclear, but they've been in talks w/#DCU for several months on it. More to come.
