In 2012, Israel became aware of Hezbollah's "plan to conquer the Galilee", as it was termed by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. Hezbollah emerged with the help of Iran during Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon in the early 1980s.

In terms of selecting host cities for the XFL's first season, it was noted that more than 30 cities and venues expressed interest in participating, and that the league was looking for dedicated long-term partners rather than just a buildings to rent.

The XFL will have a 10-week regular schedule, 45-man active rosters and two semifinal playoff games.

Luck said fans can go to XFL.com to put a deposit on season tickets.
