You love watching football, but have you seen girls playing football wearing lingerie?
The Legends Football League (LFL) is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. Once called the Lingerie Football League, the league changed its name to the Legends Football League so as to single in on the exceptional athletic ability of the women and not target them as sex symbols.
Regardless the name, the exhilaration of football just got a whole lot easier to take in. The Legends Football League combines beautiful women and adrenaline-spiked pigskin action in cities across the nation.
The league originated from the Lingerie Bowl, which coincided with halftime of the Super Bowl from 2004 to 2006. After three failed attempts to get one going the next three seasons, current CEO Mitch Mortaza expanded the single-game idea into a full season with 10 participating teams in 2009. It was rebranded as the Legends Football League in 2013.
Many of the teams are overlooked by former NFL players and coaches, with many of the athletes having a background in competitive athletics.
New England Liberty
Los Angeles Temptation
The LFL is a 7-on-7 league with no field goals and only allows punting if a team is within its own 10-yard line. It’s full contact with the ladies no longer donning garters, bras and panties since 2013. Instead, they were replaced with “performance wear.” You either score or give up possession of the football if a first down isn’t converted on fourth. Once a touchdown is scored, teams can either go for a one-point conversion from the one-yard line or a two-point conversion from the three.
The LFL is an offshoot of the Lingerie Bowl, which began in 2004 during the halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII.
The event has been marketed as an alternative to the Super Bowl half time show which gained a reputation for being boring after the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction.
The first Lingerie Bowl was shown on Pay-Per-View for $20 and featured Team Dream vs. Team Euphoria. The match up was filmed at the Los Angeles Memorial Colosseum.
The LFL expanded in 2012 and 13 with leagues kicking off in Canada and Australia. Current venues hosting LFL games in the United States are the Infinite Energy Center, Toyota Park, Ralston Arena, Verizon Wireless Arena, Cedar Park Center, Dr Pepper Arena, Citizens Business Bank Arena and ShoWare Center. Games are broadcasted on tape delay on YouTube.
The Los Angeles Temptation and Chicago Bliss have been the teams to beat with the former taking home three titles from 2010—2012 and the latter winning it in 2013 and 2014. The Seattle Mist won their first ever title last season after pulling out a 27-21 decision against the defending champion Bliss.
