According to Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle. The XFL’s inaugural Championship Game will take place in Houston Texas.
The XFL has said in the past that its championship game will take place at one of its eight host cities. It now looks like TDECU Stadium at the University Of Houston is the place.
“The Harris County-Houston Sports Authority and XFL will announce Thursday that the inaugural XFL championship game will be played at the University of Houston’s TDECU Stadium, a person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday. “

The XFL held its initial training camp in the city back in January. Now it looks like the XFL will return once again in April.
The XFL Championship Game will take place on Sunday, April 26th at 3 PM on ESPN. TDECU Stadium can hold 40,000. It is bigger than Audi Field in DC but smaller than the MetLife Stadium in New York.
40,000 seats seem to be the right size to potentially have a sell-out of its first XFL Championship game since 2001.
