PLANT CITY — The Tampa Bay Vipers said Wednesday afternoon that they plan to play their 5 p.m. game Saturday against St. Louis at Raymond James Stadium as planned.
Team president Josh Bullock said the league is keeping an eye on things and will proceed as normal.
“As of now, our next game will take place as planned," Bullock said in a statement to the Times. "We understand this situation is evolving and the league is monitoring all developments daily.”
The XFL announced Wednesday afternoon that the Seattle Dragons’ home game Sunday against the L.A. Wildcats will be played without fans present given Washington governor Jay Inslee’s ban on gatherings of 250 people or more in specific counties. The Dragons later issued a refund policy announcement.
This story will be further updated as it develops.
