(LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Thursday, June 27, 2013) Officials from LFL Canada and Calgary’s Stampede Corral have announced a new franchise set to join LFL Canada in 2013.
The newly named Calgary Fillies will join the LFL Canada champion BC Angels, Saskatoon Sirens and Regina Rage forming LFL Canada. Home games for the Fillies are scheduled for Saturday, September 14, 2013 vs. Regina Rage and Saturday, November 9, 2013 vs. BC Angels at Stampede Corral.
LFL Canada is coming off a very successful 2012 inaugural season which included (20%) twenty-percent higher than projected attendance as well as a television deal with RDS.
“This is an incredible milestone for LFL Canada as we expand our league into a flagship sports city. Calgary has been at the top of our list but we did not have the right opportunity prior, in 2013, we have secured a great venue partner with the Stampede Corral”, said, Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder & Chairman, Legends Football League Global.
LFL Canada is part of LFL Global which has grown to an international sports franchise with league play which includes LFL USA, LFL Australia, LFL Canada and in 2015, LFL Europa.
