The eight XFL 3.0 teams unveiled their new uniforms yesterday. Unlike XFL 2.0’s uniforms, which didn’t have maker’s marks, the new uniforms carry Under Armour branding on the jerseys, pants, and socks.
Here’s a quick video overview of the eight home uniforms (the most notable moment comes at the 0:13 mark):

You can tell this version of the XFL is waaaaaay more professional than XFL 1.0 and 2.0 because they misspelled league owner Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s name in the unveiling press release. Really! Can’t make it up:
(They fixed the typo after I tweeted about it yesterday. And yes, they also misspelled “gridiron,” which they didn’t fix.)
Each team posted a video showing additional uni details. For some reason, all of the videos are vertically oriented and have terrible lighting. So yeah, XFL 3.0 is off to a great start. Here we go:

Obviously, most of these are pretty bad, but I’m not the target audience, so whatever. If you want to learn more and have a good laugh along the way, ESPN, which is broadcasting the league’s games, ran this hilariously obsequious puff-piece segment on the new designs:
This is the part where I say something like “Take a good look at these while you can, because they won’t be around very long,” and then some of you insist that this time will be different and the league will actually be a big success, and then I say it’s nice how some people continue to believe in the Tooth Fairy. So there, we got all of that out of the way.
XFL 3.0’s schedule is set to begin on Feb. 18, which is the Saturday after the Super Bowl.
