If I understand the newer info, there are 3 teams that are no longer and 2 new teams added. Scheduled to start in February 18 2023. Teams will not play in a centralized type hub used in the USFL. They will play in each home city for the clubs. TC opens in January.

Also eliminated was the extra team which was a little like the accumulation of PR players. Now they will be more active at the individual team level.

XFL will compete for players from other leagues. I suppose the CFL could lose some PR players and possibly 2nd year fringe players that reach free agency?

Further, we will try to understand the salary structure in XFL;
XFL Structure Explored:

? Average Salary: $55,000

? Bi-Weekly paycheck: $2,080

? Activation Fee: $1,685

? Victory Bonus: $2,222


I'm still wondering what happens with the 2nd year in the USFL and whether all teams or even the league survives against added competition.

Pay/compensation: The XFL has a pretty nice compensation package for players who do nothing but attend camp, and for those who go beyond, there is a base $50,000 contract for players active for all 10 games (plus $1,000 per win ?incentive?). Even for a team that goes winless, it?s a $5,000 bump over USFL salaries. Also worth noting: because the league begins play early in ?23, players with NFL offers will be able to make Phase 2 of NFL off-season programs.

    $800 per week for training camp (five weeks)
    $5,000 per game regular season active list (10 games)
    $1,500 per week inactive list (10 games)
    $1,000 per win (active and inactive list)
    Playoff bonuses for winners and losers of playoff games
    Significant championship bonus for both winning and losing teams
    Players will be released following their team?s final game (late April or early


So another 10 week season league for $50K usd which is going to attract some CFL free agents.

Interesting about players being released after their final game.

I haven't heard anything about the USFL in 2023. You have to wonder how they can make a business case to continue. No fans and no revenue stream.
