Gagnier Communications handles the XFL as it plans to merge with the United States Football League, a move that joins the two spring leagues.
The combination “will anchor professional spring football with substantial capabilities and resources to ensure future growth and continue to enhance the development of the collective players, coaches, and staff that are coming together,” said the joint announcement.
The leagues promised to release more details soon.
The games of the USFL, which opened its second season in April are televised by FOX and NBC. The league has eight teams based in Birminghan, Houston, Memphis, Michigan, New Jersey, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
The XFL kicked off in February with eight teams in San Antonio, Arlington, Houston, Las Vegas, Orlando, Seattle, St. Louis, and Washington.
The former husband and wife team of Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia, along with Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital Partners own the XFL.
Gagnier Communications’ Dan Gagnier and Lindsay Barber handle PR for the XFL.
