I wonder how the XFL will decide their championship host cities?

This is more for the league than it is fans. I doubt fans care where the game will be. We're the only one of the major sports that designates a neutral site for their championship games. The only other sports that do are college football and basketball. The other 3 major leagues pick 1 site for their All-Star games to be held, not the costly bidding process.1

Are the NFL or fans opposed to the idea of having the Super Bowl at the home of the best remaining team?

Edit: Apparently yes the NFL is opposed to the idea of home field advantage. There were plans in place to limit the home field advantage if he Vikings made it.

Throughout the Super Bowl's history, there have been two games that were, in essence, home games. The 1979 Los Angeles Rams played the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIV at The Rose Bowl; and the 1984 San Francisco 49ers played the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVIX, played at Stanford Stadium. To circumvent home field, the NFL first took the host team's 15 percent of tickets and divvied that up equally. "Home" teams also stayed in hotels rather than their homes.

I'm sure fans (real fans) aren't, but the NFL is...

WAY too much planning goes into hosting a SB...it'd be a nightmare for a city to find out 14 days ahead of time...

Not to mention that stadiums would have to be available and you know somebody is gonna bitch about having to play a SB in Foxboro or Heinz Field...

Yes. The Superbowl is way more than the game. It's a week long event. Years of planning and preparation go into each Superbowl. With that comes tons of money, exposure, etc. You lose all of that if you wait until 2 weeks prior to find out where the game will be held.

Good point on the planning aspect. From what I just read the NFL also just doesn’t want a team to have an advantage in the Super Bowl.

If they did it that way you might as well not call it the Superbowl anymore. None of the events that occur during Superbowl week would occur. The visiting team wouldn't get there until the day before like regular season games. Most importantly for the league they wouldn't be able to sell tickets for the astronomical prices they sell them at.
