Aug. 21 (UPI) -- The XFL unveiled the names and logos for its eight teams as the league prepares for its debut season in February 2020.

The XFL spent the last two years deciding on team locations, reaching stadium agreements and locating head coaches and players. The league's teams will play in NFL, MLB and MLS facilities.

The league office sent draft pool invitations to players and announced last month that former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones was the first player to officially sign with the XFL.

The next step for the XFL will be finalizing a rulebook. The league said its rules will include a unique overtime setup, accelerated game tempo and various kickoff and special-teams changes.

The XFL plans to hold its first player draft in October, followed by team minicamps in December and a three-week training camp in January.
