- Team 9 is based in Arlington, Texas at the Globe Life Park in Arlington it seats 25,000 and is coached by Bart Andrus. Team 9 is a hybrid farm and practice squad players based on the NFL Europe concept. It holds a maximum of 40 players at a time and is meant to prepare players for a call up to one of the XFL’s 8 teams to fill roster vacancies due to injuries of other players or if the teams see a player as a “hidden gem”. The team shares practice facilities and support staff with the Dallas Renegades but maintains its own coaching staff; its head coach is Bart Andrus. During the first two weeks of the season, teams are encouraged to use players from Team 9 to fill roster spots. After Week 2, exclusively using Team 9 players to fill rosters will become a requirement, with Team 9 constantly replenishing itself by adding new players from outside the XFL. After Week 5, all 40 players on Team 9 will be dispersed to the XFL’s 8 teams and each team’s maximum roster size will increase from 52 to 57 players. After the Week 5 roster spot increase, it will reload to approximately 36 players. via Wikipedia.
