The Dallas Renegades are a professional American football team based in Arlington, Texas. The team is an owned-and-operated member of the new XFL founded by Vince McMahon of World Wrestling Entertainment. The team will play its home games at Globe Life Park in Arlington, which is being repurposed as a football venue after its previous tenant, Major League Baseball's Texas Rangers, relocates to the newly built Globe Life Field.[1]

Dallas joins Seattle, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Tampa Bay and Washington, D.C. as the league's inaugural cities. It is the first professional outdoor football team to play in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in a league other than the NFL since the Dallas Rockets and Forth Worth Braves of the Texas Football League folded midway through the 1971 season; the metro area has been represented by numerous indoor teams, such as the Arena Football League's Dallas Texans, Fort Worth Cavalry, Dallas Desperados and Dallas Vigilantes, and the Allen Wranglers and Texas Revolution. It enters a relatively crowded winter sports market against the NHL's Dallas Stars and NBA's Dallas Mavericks. The team will also have to compete with or schedule around MLS's FC Dallas in March and April.

Teams will have 45-man active rosters and play a 10-week season. Vince McMahon said “the game will feature simplified rules for a faster pace of game that should complete in under three hours”, and will draw from former college and NFL players.[2]

The Renegades' name, logo and colors were revealed August 21, 2019 along with the rest of the league's. The team branding and imagery draws from the outlaw motorcycle club mythos.

Staff[edit]

On February 7, 2019, Bob Stoops, the longtime head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners football team, was hired as the Dallas team's head coach. Stoops was the XFL's first head coaching hire.[3][4]

On April 23, 2019, Stoops named Chris Woods as his defensive coordinator.[5]

On May 16, 2019, Stoops named Hal Mumme as his offensive coordinator.[6]
