FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAS VEGAS, NV. (April 12, 2012/LFL360.com) — Lingerie Football League, LLC. Chairman and Commissioner Mitchell S. Mortaza today released the following statement on the future plans of LFL Football in the United States.
“Since premiering in 2009, LFL United States has drawn incredible success which has included sell-out crowds, aggressive franchise expansion and record television ratings, all of which leading to being called the fastest- growing sports league in the U.S. as per Businessweek. Despite this success, we feel that our U.S. franchise can reach greater heights with a shift of our regular season schedule from a fall and winter format to spring and summer schedule.
Thus in 2012, we have officially moved, not suspended the LFL U.S. season to April 2013. This move in schedule enables our LFL US teams extra preparation which ultimately will greatly improve the product on the field in 2013.
Our shift in schedule has also enabled us to kickoff the Lingerie Football League’s international growth and strategy to include the premiere of LFL Canada (Fall 2012) and LFL Australia (Summer 2013).
The focus now is to not only be the ‘fastest growing sports league in the US’ but globally.” – Mitchell S. Mortaza, LFL Chairman and Commissioner.
