Following the decision by several sports leagues to suspend play, it looks like the XFL has decided to do the same. According to multiple reports, the league is suspended play for the rest of the season.
NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk is reporting that the league has informed players of their decision to suspend play.
The league will reportedly attempt to play at least one championship game in a few weeks. The XFL is only halfway through the season with only five games played so far.
The news comes after it was announced other today by Tampa, Florida officials that they would not be canceling WrestleMania, at least not as of now. WWE plans on continuing with the show but there are contingency plans being discussed.
The decision for the XFL season was more immediate and obviously the last thing the league needed right now.
