There is loud, and then there is Seattle loud. Football fans in the emerald city have long had a reputation for bringing the noise. We could hear them from 3,000 miles away, and it convinced us that the XFL needed a permanent home in the rugged Northwest. Seattle is a tech-forward, environmentally progressive, future-leaning city. It’s a place where you can re-imagine the world. We were hard-pressed to find a better place to re-imagine football in 2020.
