During Fox’s coverage of the playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks. An XFL commercial was dropped and we felt it on XFL News Hub.
At around 8:13 pm EST, our site traffic jumped a whopping 4,000%. Our server didn’t hold it and it went down for a couple of minutes until the search volume went down. We were back online within a couple of minutes.
XFL News Hub reporter Mickey J Wind noticed the impact the commercial had on the XFL’s official Twitter account.
Since the first @xfl2020 commercial aired yesterday, their twitter feed has gained 4,000 new followers.— Mickey J Wind – The Guardian of the Gridiron (@torybutlerrang1) January 13, 2020
This is an exciting time as new fans are coming into the XFL as the NFL season wraps up. We were not sure how a promotion on nation TV would affect the XFL as well as our site. Now we know it will and we are ready for it next time.
Since Fox will be broadcasting this year’s Super Bowl. It is safe to assume there will be an XFL commercial or two broadcasted during the game. With the world and everyone in the country watching, that broadcast partnership will come in handy with the league set to kick off the next week.
