Earlier this year, the second version of the XFL was starting up and it came back with all the hype in place. Sadly however as of the Coronavirus pandemic was raging rapidly, the league shut down operations until Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and his investment group bought the league and their assets.
But by next February, a new league will be forming, this time with fans calling the shots.
In a tweet by user Patrick Dees, the fledgling league is currently in talks with former NFL stars Ricky Williams and Brian Urlacher to join in.
As mentioned in the article above, the Fan Controlled Football League or the ‘FCFL,’ will be a league that has football fans to help call plays for coaches via streams on Twitch.
There will be four teams that are a part of the league and they are the Zappers, Wild Aces, Glacier Boyz, and the Beasts.
Notable owners of those teams for the FCFL include Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, former running back ‘Beast Mode’ Marshawn Lynch, comedian/sports satire commentator Bob Menery and boxer Mike Tyson.
The FCFL is seeking to begin their six-game season on February 13, 2021, just a few days removed after Super Bowl LV.
