About the LFL:
The Lingerie Football League (LFL), founded in 2009, is an extension of the extremely popular Super Bowl halftime alternative programming phenomenon, “The Lingerie Bowl”, which drew millions of viewers and blue-chip advertisers over its initial five-year run.
Currently featuring 13 teams in two countries, the LFL is currently the fastest growing women’s professional sports league in the United States and has achieved greater initial success than the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
In 2010, the LFL continued to thrive by signing a national television deal with MTV Networks, drawing sell-out crowds and adding five expansion markets for the 2011 season. Lingerie Bowl IX garnered record-high ratings for the network and was viewed by millions of fans throughout the globe.
In 2011, the LFL announced the creation of a six-team Canadian football league, set to debut in Fall 2012 as well as future expansion into Australia (2013) and Europe (2014).
