“LFL’s progress as a global sports franchise in merely four years is truly unprecedented. We initially set out to become the most recognized women’s sports franchise in the US. Over the next five years we will become one of the most recognized global brands in all of sport. We will surpass the NFL as the leader in American football internationally by 2015,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder & Chairman, Legends Football League, LLC.
This round of international television partnerships was brokered by Total Sports Asia, LFL Global’s media rights distributor. Each of these broadcasters will air LFL Global league play, to include LFL USA, LFL Canada, and LFL Australia.
