Updated May 16th, 2023.
The XFL is back, and I’ve made an iCal-format 2023 XFL Schedule which you can add to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac with just a couple of clicks. Click here to get it. The calendar also works with Google calendar (see below). Includes dates, times, teams, and TV stations. Updated with scores as games are completed.
Opening day is Saturday, February 18th, 2023– the weekend after the NFL’s Super Bowl. Interesting timing, XFL!
The listings for the games have little football icons in front, as shown below, so you can quickly pick out the football stuff from amongst your other appointments.
Here’s how it looks on a Mac, macOS 12.6.2 (Monterey):
Pretty handy to have the games integrated with your regular Calendar app (in their own calendar/category of course). You don’t have to do anything to get updates– if there are any, they’ll come in automatically. See the info below about how to properly subscribe to the calendar.
Assuming the XFL plays next year, your subscription to this XFL calendar will automatically update with that season’s games as soon as I can get the info.
How to add the XFL calendar to your Google calendar
Just right-click this link and copy it, go to Google Calendar (that is, use a web browser to go to calendar.google.com), sign in if necessary, then click the plus sign to the right of “Other calendars.” Choose the option to “Add from URL.” Paste in what you copied and you’re all set.
On iPhones and iPads and Macs, if you’re asked where to import the calendar, choose “New Calendar.” You probably won’t be asked. When things go right, the calendar is automatically named “XFL (Google)” (because it’s hosted at Google) and it’s completely separate from your other calendars. When you’re asked whether you want to subscribe to the calendar, the answer is YES, you want to subscribe. That way you get updates when I change something. Also, if you subscribe you will get updates next year, and the next year, and so on. Subscribing is free, and you don’t have to give me your email address or anything like that. And of course you can unsubscribe if you want. It would be cool if you shared the calendar on your various social media platforms. That would help me out.
Here’s how it looks on the iPhone after you click the XFL Calendar link.
Here’s how it will look after you click the XFL Calendar link on a Mac:
It would be smart to set up your calendar like this, if you can. For sure turn on the auto-refresh as information is added to the calendar as the information becomes available.
The calendar is called “XFL (Google)” and you can simply uncheck it if you don’t want to see it. You can also rename it. Subscribe once and you’re all set, for this year and the next and the next etc. I’m not planning on stopping.
Game times should be correct for your current time zone, unless you’ve done something special in your Date and Time preferences.
I’ll update the calendar with the scores of the games as they happen. You can subscribe to the calendar now and just wait for me to update the source as the info becomes available. Your calendar app will always show the latest info. Enjoy.

Note: I made this calendar because I couldn’t find one online. Yes, I could find a web page with the XFL schedule, but no, I couldn’t find an XFL calendar that I could import into my iPhone’s Calendar app. It’s way better to see the games listed right there with your other Calendar appointments than to be flipping back and forth between the Calendar app and a listing on a web page. I couldn’t find what I wanted elsewhere– so I made it myself.
