The XFL is returning soon and with that return, the league is looking to partner with another league in another country. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who took ownership of the league after his former boss relinquished ownership due to the pandemic, is a former player himself from the CFL. According to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, the XFL and CFL “Canadian Football League” are in negotiations to create some sort of partnership.
Here’s how it could work, a source told Front Office Sports: Both leagues would play their regular seasons — there could be “interleague” games, similar to MLB — and once the respective XFL and CFL champions are crowned, they’d face off in an interleague championship game.
There could also be an “All-Star Game” pitting players from both leagues. The long-term objective: the merger of the two pro football leagues.
The ultimate goal of the partnership is said to be a merger between the two leagues. This would ideally expand the CFL’s reach further into the United States while making XFL teams viable in Canada.
