XFL Suspends Operations, all Employees Laid Off

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the XFL has suspended operations, and all employees have been laid off.

XFL COO Jeffrey Pollock notified employees of their termination via a short, ten-minute conference call. The XFL relaunched in spring 2020 to somewhat mixed reviews, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the league to shorten its inaugural season.

Per Yates, the league has no plans to resume operations in 2021.
