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.
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.
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.
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).
focus now is to not only be the ‘fastest growing sports league in the
US’ but globally.” – Mitchell S. Mortaza, LFL Chairman and Commissioner.
