The XFL appears to be postponing the remainder of its 2020 season, according to Brady Quinn of Fox Sports. Quinn, who also happens to be a color analyst for XFL games, is reporting that the inaugural season of Vince McMahon’s Alpha Entertainment product is going to be postponed. This is one day removed after the football league stated that the upcoming Seattle Dragons and Los Angeles Wildcats game would take place as scheduled this coming Sunday.

An official statement was released by the XFL later in the evening, stating that it would be committed to having their second season in 2021:

“Currently, the XFL will not be playing its regular-season games. However, all players will be paid their base pay and benefits for the 2020 regular season. All XFL ticket holders will be issued refunds or credit toward future games. The XFL is committed to playing a full season in 2021 and future years.”
