The brand-new XFL is well under way, with a well-attended and tuned into opening week of professional football action. The eight-team, ten-week league did have one internal question mark entering the season: the site of the championship game had yet to be decided.

Now, the XFL has named TDECU Stadium on the University of Houston’s campus as the site of their 2020 Championship game. The Houston Roughnecks, perhaps the league’s most impressive team in Week 1, play their home games at TDECU Stadium.

The venue is capable of holding up to 42,000 fans. Though stadiums like CenturyLink Field in Seattle (Dragons, Seahawks) and MetLife Stadium in New York/New Jersey (Guardians, Giants, Jets) can hold an excess of 70,000 fans each, it’s unlikely that kind of capacity would be needed this year.

Like the NFL, the XFL’s title game will take place at a pre-determined site, rather than the home stadium of one of the teams as many other sports allow.
