Sportico’s report came before the XFL was set to be auctioned off.

The XFL was forced to shut down all operations in early April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, laying off all of its employees, as well. It was the league’s second attempt at functioning as a football league.

The XFL filed for bankruptcy and previous owner Vince McMahon said he spent over $200 million on the league. He had no plans of repurchasing the league in an attempt to resurrect it after it came to a screeching halt.
