Vancouver getting its own Lingerie Football League team
Watch out, B.C. Lions. Soon, you're not going to be the only pro football game in town.
That's right. The Lingerie Football League is coming to Vancouver.
Today (September 28), the league announced the awarding of franchises to five Canadian cities—Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Quebec City, and Montreal. Toronto apparently already has a team.
The six Canadian squads are scheduled to hit the field in fall 2012 for the inaugural season of LFL Canada. The 12-week season will lead to the first-ever Canadian Lingerie Bowl, to be staged on the eve of the 2012 Grey Cup.
Currently, 12 teams, including the Orlando Fantasy and Los Angeles Temptation, play in the LFL, which was founded in 2009. The LFL describes itself as the "fastest growing women's professional sports league in the United States".
