XFL co-owner Dany Garcia has confirmed non-disclosure agreements are in place and being adhered to as the league works on “innovation” for the future.
Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and RedBird Capital were selected as the winning bidders last August for all of the assets of Alpha Entertainment LLC, the parent company of the XFL. It cost $15 million and the goal is to make the XFL a stable league in the future, which could be aided by an arrangement with the CFL.
The owners of both leagues have agreed to work together to identify opportunities for innovating and growing the game of football. The Rock has stated he’s excited for the ‘unique opportunity’ the CFL and XFL ‘can potentially create together.’
Garcia posted a picture on her Instagram story Tuesday evening and wrote: “When you’re working on innovation for XFL but the NDA is so deep the only thing you can show is the art in the women’s bathroom.”
Garcia’s social media post is further proof the XFL is engaged in high-level discussions regarding the league’s future, and merger speculation will only grow from it. She tweeted on Tuesday as well and wrote: “Put me in coach, Oh wait… I am the coach.” That’s sure to bring on more conjecture as people try to decipher the meaning.
The original XFL lasted one full season in 2001 and just part of one season before the COVID-19 pandemic put their 2020 season on hold, which led to Vince McMahon filing for bankruptcy and selling to Johnson, Garcia, and RedBird Capital.
Meanwhile, the Grey Cup has been awarded for over 100 years in Canada and the three-down league is trying to put football back on the field in 2021.
