The XFL files for bankruptcy and is actually for sale

So, who wants to own a football league?

News broke over the long weekend that the XFL was shutting down operations and laying off employees.

The XFL lasted just part of one season before the COVID-19 pandemic put their season on hold. At the time, the league promised it would be back in 2021. That’s looking less likely by the day with reports suggesting the league was toast over the weekend.

Now, that appears more likely than ever.

On Monday, the league officially filed for bankruptcy and it’s not surprising once you see the money they owe.

That’s some serious coin owed to various creditors including former Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman.

The story doesn’t end there, though.

There’s a possibility that someone may want to take another crack at American spring football. It appears the league is up for sale as part of the bankruptcy proceedings.

Any interest in the 3DownNation Football League?
