The XFL has laid off its entire staff and suspended all football operations, just a month after spiking the remainder of its regular-season games, according to a press release.

"Currently, the XFL will not be playing its regular-season games. However, all players will be paid their base pay and benefits for the 2020 regular season," a statement from the company reads.

"All XFL ticket holders will be issued refunds or credit toward future games. The XFL is committed to playing a full season in 2021 and future years."

ESPN reporter Field Yates tweeted details from a conference call with a league officials: "On a call today with COO Jeffery Pollock, XFL employees were just informed that the league is suspending operations and all employees have been laid off. Another sport impacted further by the current COVID-19 crisis."

XFL employees will reportedly be paid through Sunday. There have been no talks on when the league would reboot its operations, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Vince McMahon, who is also the chairman and CEO of WWE, spent $500 million to relaunch the XFL this year. His financial commitment runs through three years of the league's operations.
