Vince McMahon’s XFL football league is shutting down for the season, a victim of the coronavirus and the widening clampdown on nonessential activity.

“The Covid-19 pandemic, and the most recent state and local regulations, have left the XFL no choice but to official cancel the remainder of the 2020 season,” the league said Friday in an email.
