EXCITING NEWS! The XFL is due to return in 2020, with 8 teams and a 10-game schedule. Best of all, the newly-revived league will be wholly owned by Vince McMahon, so there won't be any interference from WWE shareholders nor networks.

Welcome to the home of the XFL San Francisco Demons.

An exciting and scrappy team, they never knew when to give up, and made it all the way the Million Dollar Game championship, losing to the Los Angeles Xtreme. Unfortunately, the first season of XFL Demons’ football was to be their one and only. Fans rocked Pacific Bell Park with a league-high average of more than 35,000 fans. In spite of the city hosting an NFL team, the Demons fans came out in droves to support their team.  The team was originally slated to play in San Jose, about 50 miles south of San Francisco, but Pacific Bell Stadium officials convinced the XFL to move the Demons there.

The Demons featured two of the best Quarterbacks in the league in Mike Pawlawski and Pat Barnes, and also featured Eric England on defense.  The team struggled early on in the season, but then really got turned on about the middle of the season; they finished strong and not only qualified for the playoffs, but made it all the way to the championship game ("The Million Dollar Game") against the Los Angeles Xtreme.

One popular feature at home games was the "Hell Hole", at one end of the endzone.  Fans packed into the Hell Hole and did their best to have the most intimidating endzone in the league.

A solid performance endeared the team to their fans, and the fans made the Demons into the most popular team in the league.  The Demons set the standard for the other teams to follow, and they will be sorely missed.
The Demons even made the cover of Sports Illustrated in a not-so-flattering article about the league. The team started the season off slowly, but midway through they found their groove and really started clicking. This chemistry helped avenge an earlier loss to the Orlando Rage, the Eastern Division Champions, in an exciting 26-25 playoff victory.

Hiring Jim Skipper as Head Coach really paid off for the Demons; his previous stint as Asst HC/Offensive Coordinator for the NFL's NY Giants undoubtedly had a lot to do with propelling the Demons into the league's championship contest, the "Million-Dollar Game." Unfortunately, the Demons just couldn't keep pace with their nemeses, the Los Angeles Xtreme, falling 38-6.

San Francisco fans led the league in attendance, averaging 34,954 fans per game! Slated to originally play in San Jose, the Demons never would have attracted that many fans and ended up making the right decision in relocating to San Francisco's PacBell Stadium. The "Hell Hole?" HELL, YEAH! Long live the Demons!
