The Legends Football League (LFL) is a women’s 7-on-7 tackle American football league, with games played in the spring and summer at NBA, NFL, NHL and MLS arenas and stadiums. The league was founded in 2009 as the Lingerie Football League and was rebranded as the Legends Football League in 2013.

In a press release, the Legends Football League said that these “past nine years have been spent tirelessly working to establish a brand and sport that was non-existent prior to 2009. In a very short period of time, in relation to brand evolution standards in sports, especially women’s sport, we have built a sport that has been played in nearly every major continent at major arenas and stadiums, broadcast to over 200+ television markets and drawn stadium crowds of over 22,000 spectators”, said Mitchell Mortaza, LFL Managing Partner.

The LFL’s primary focus will be to build out its U.S. league, however the LFL continues to develop strategy for the launch of LFL Canada, LFL Australia and LFL Europa.

In the States, the LFL has already secured ownership groups in Nashville and Houston and is in active talks as it relates to New York / New Jersey, Arizona, San Francisco, Washington DC / Northern Virginia, North Carolina, Kansas City and Philadelphia.

Started as an Alternative to the Super Bowl Halftime Show

The concept of the LFL originated from an alternative Super Bowl halftime television special called the Lingerie Bowl, a pay-per-view event broadcast opposite the Super Bowl halftime show. The playing style is full-contact and similar to other indoor football leagues. The players’ uniforms consist of shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, performance wear, and ice hockey-style helmets with clear plastic visors in lieu of face masks. Prior to the 2013 season, players wore garters, bras, and panties.
