In August 2019, the re-emerged X Football League (XFL) announced the name and logo for their new team in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Wildcats are one of the league's eight inaugural teams (Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington DC). The team is coached by veteran NFL player and assistant coach, Winston Moss. The team played its first game on February 8, 2020, in Houston against that city's Roughnecks, losing 37–17. Later at home, on February 23, 2020, it won its first game against the D.C. Defenders, 39-9.
The earlier version of the XFL, also owned by Vince McMahon, played for one season during 2001 and included the Los Angeles Xtreme as one of their teams.
