CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Crush, members of the Lingerie Football League (LFL), haven’t even started practice yet and they’re already anticipating a bigger fan base. With the National Football League in the middle of heated labor negotiations, LFL officials are hoping that the third season of its league’s games move to Sundays to replace any lost NFL action.
In a release from the LFL, Media Director Stephon McMillen wrote that LFL officials have instilled a rigorous off-season workout for all LFL teams across the country in preparation for the season that is scheduled to kick off on Friday, August 26.
In April, each team in the LFL will invite 40 women to compete at mini-camps with 30 expected to be invited to each team’s training camp in June. The final rosters will include 20 women per team.
Women who are interested in trying to play professional football in bras, underwear and shoulder pads can fill out an application form on the LFL web site. The Crush will play their games at Quicken Loans Arena.
Other teams are located in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Tampa, Orlando and Miami.
