    XCFL preseason is officially underway and football fans are buzzing with anticipation. Only a few weeks away from kicking off the 2023 campaign, players are hitting the field while coaches make their final decisions on who will crack the 53 man roster.

    Following an action packed offseason around the league, the Vikings are ready to hit the field with their own new-look team. New coach, new players, and a new season. Fans have waited patiently to see how it will all come together and the time is now.

    Through a series of trades, free agent signings and the draft, the Vikings added plenty of new faces and will head into the season with a fairly loaded roster. However, if that talent will translate into success or not is yet to be seen and will depend largely on if the team can find some chemistry early on.

    One of the Vikings biggest offseason additions, QB Leonard Carrington, is set to take charge under center. The offense that surrounds him contains high flying capability with playmakers throughout. On the other end, a defence stacked with veteran experience and skill.

    The Vikings have all the pieces and appear to be on the up after a long stretch of down seasons, fans, players, coaches and the entire organization are excited to see how far the club will go this year.

    The following players have been appointed as captains for this season.
    •Danielle Hunter
    •Douglas Smith
    •Byron Jones
    •Stefon Diggs
    •Leonard Carrington

    Minnesota will open the 2023 regular season in front of the home crowd vs the Eagles.
