2020 was supposed to be the year for the XFL to come back with a bang, but five weeks in and everything went all to hell thanks to the coronavirus.
The league suspended the season, hoping it had a chance to come back.
On Friday, the XFL made the harsh decision to officially end the 2020 campaign and allow players to start signing with NFL teams on Monday.
“The COVID-19 pandemic, and the most recent local and state regulations, have left the XFL no choice but to officially cancel the remainder of the 2020 season,” the league said in a statement.
“Your passion, your commitment to your favorite XFL team and your love of football made our season a success beyond our wildest dreams.”
The XFL said in the statement it is looking forward to playing a full season in 2021 and beyond.
The Houston Roughnecks finish the year with the best record at 5-0.
