Faces of Football: Dallas Renegades

Every great product, service, or company has an interesting story, and that story is best told by the people behind its success. Learn more about Dallas Renegades.

Dallas has long been known as a premier destination for the sports enthusiast. Starting in February 2020 there’s another football team in town—the Dallas Renegades. This XFL isn’t anything like the XFL you may remember from 2001. It’s authentic football with tested rule modifications and fast-paced, quality action fans will love, on the Renegades’ home field at Globe Life Park. Head coach and general manager is Bob Stoops, who boasts a nearly .800 career win percentage. Team president is Grady Raskin, who spent numerous seasons with the Dallas Stars and Texas Rangers. You’ll recognize many of the players, including quarterback Landry Jones, who most recently played for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The XFL, with eight teams across the United States, is different—in a good way. One of its primary focuses is the fan experience. This is family-friendly fun with up-close-and-personal seats near the field. We’re talking lots of offense, player interaction, fan participation, unique access, and something fans rarely experience with NFL games—affordability. Ticket prices range from $20 to $80, with all the seats in the lower bowl of the stadium.

There are more than 87 million football fans in the U.S. and 38 million want more football. The XFL and Dallas Renegades want to fulfill that demand. “This is going to be fun,” notes coach Bob Stoops. “It will be fast, high-quality football—the type fans want to see.” Not only does it give Dallas three more months of gridiron action, but it will also definitely be exciting.

Football fans won’t have to stop watching their favorite sport after the Super Bowl. With a season that starts the weekend after that big game and goes until late April, football lovers will be in heaven. “We’re not asking fans to stop being Cowboys fans,” Stoops says. “We’re just saying that when that season is over, put on your Renegades jersey for a few months and come out and watch some great football.”
