The Rock announces San Antonio’s Alamodome will host first ever XFL Championship game

On Sunday, the San Antonio Brahmas played in the XFL’s latest season opener. By hosting the first XFL championship game, their city will also lead to the season’s end in 2023. The title game will take place on May 13 at the Alamodome, the league announced only minutes before the Brahmas and St. Louis Battlehawks’ Week 1 matchup.

“We are thrilled to announce that San Antonio and the Alamodome will be the host of this season’s inaugural Championship Game,” XFL chairwoman and co-owner Dany Garcia said in a statement. “I have been so impressed by the level of enthusiasm and commitment from the fans in San Antonio. We can’t wait to bring together the best of the XFL North and XFL South to compete for the Championship title in an event that will celebrate our players, coaches, and the revival of professional football in San Antonio.”

Garcia’s XFL co-owner Dwayne Johnson said that the host location also had a special connection to his past. “I started my wrestling career in San Antonio, specifically at the Alamodome,” he said in an XFL statement. “This was my very first Royal Rumble. The city, the fans, San Antonio, and the state of Texas helped shape my career.”

The first-ever XFL Championship Game will be played at 8 p.m. ET on May 13. The Alamodome not only hosts the Brahmas, a new team in the most recent incarnation of the XFL, but it also serves as the home field for the UTSA Roadrunners and the NCAA’s Alamo Bowl. The San Antonio Commanders, one of the eight teams of the now-defunct Alliance of American Football League, previously called the place their home.
