US | LEAGUE ANNOUNCES TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ORLANDO FANTASY FRANCHISE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAS VEGAS (May 24, 2012/LFL360.com) – The office of LFL Commissioner Mitchell Mortaza announced today the temporary suspension of the Orlando Fantasy for the 2013 season. The Orlando Fantasy, coming off the franchise’s most successful season on-the-field,  finishing at 3-1, struggled off-the-field with numerous conduct issues which led to the dismissal of Head Coach Doug Miller and his staff as well as several player banishments to be announced.

“Orlando continues to be potentially an incredible city for LFL football. However the lack of an arena or stadium that fits within our financial and production model coupled with a lack of confidence in the current coaching and leadership, led to this decision. We are committed to bringing the Orlando Fantasy back once we have the right home and a better team culture,” said Mitchell Mortaza, Commissioner, Lingerie Football League, LLC.
