Tilman Fertitta, Dan Snyder, Jeff Bezos, and Eagles Ownership Group Enter the Fray for Commanders Franchise

Billionaire Tilman Fertitta has joined the bidding war for the Commanders, the new professional football team in the XFL. According to a report from Fox Business, Fertitta is the latest to join the fray for the team, which is set to begin play in 2020.

The Commanders have been the subject of much speculation, with reports that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was interested in bidding on the team. However, Yahoo Sports reported that Dan Snyder’s Commanders have reportedly banned Bezos from bidding on the team.

Now, Fertitta has entered the mix, and he could be a serious contender for the team. Fertitta is the owner of the Houston Rockets of the NBA and he is no stranger to professional sports.

Meanwhile, Inside the Iggles has reported that an ownership group led by the Philadelphia Eagles is also planning to bid on the team. This group includes Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, former Eagles player and current team president Don Smolenski, and other prominent Philadelphia businessmen.

The bidding war for the Commanders is heating up, and it looks like it could be a battle between Fertitta and the Eagles ownership group. Only time will tell who will emerge victorious.
