The XFL has suspended operations indefinitely due to the coronavirus with no return in sight for now. It has also laid off its operational staff.

The 2020 XFL season lasted five games before the league canceled its season due to COVID-19.

A handful of players and coaches with Hawaii ties were featured in the league, including quarterback Jordan Ta’amu. The Pearl City graduate was one of the success stories of the league after securing a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, the defending Super Bowl champions.
