The 2023 XFL season is already underway and fans are already looking forward to the league’s first championship game under new management. Earlier today, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia announced that the 2023 XFL Championship Game will be held in San Antonio, Texas on May 13, 2023 at the Alamodome. The game will air live on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.
“Our inaugural XFL season is officially rolling with our eight teams showing out and representing the passionate fans of their cities,” XFL Co-Owner Dwayne Johnson said.
“From now through May, our athletes have their eyes set on the Championship game and we’re pumped to bring this historic event to the Alamodome. Plus, on a very personal note, I started my wrestling career in San Antonio, specifically at the Alamodome. This was my very first Royal Rumble. The city, the fans – San Antonio and the state of Texas helped shape my career.”
San Antonio is home to the Brahmas, who fell to the St. Louis BattleHawks on Sunday afternoon by three points. Meanwhile, the Houston Roughnecks and Arlington Renegades got off to a 1-0 start with strong defensive performances. The DC Defenders and Seattle Sea Dragons will wrap up week one action in the nation’s capital.
The 2023 XFL season will consist of 10 regular season games followed by a four-team playoff determined by standings in the North and South divisions. The top two teams in each division will play on April 29-30 in locations to be determined. Two weeks later, the winners of each playoff game will meet at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
“We are thrilled to announce that San Antonio and the Alamodome will be the host of this season’s inaugural Championship Game,” XFL Co-Owner Dany Garcia said.
“I have been so impressed by the level of enthusiasm and commitment from the fans in San Antonio. We can’t wait to bring together the best of the XFL North and XFL South to compete for the Championship title in an event that will celebrate our players, coaches, and the revival of professional football in San Antonio.”
