From Regina Leader-Post
Regina was awarded a Lingerie Football League Canada franchise on Wednesday.
While details, including the team name and schedule, are not confirmed, the Brandt Centre has been named the official home of the Regina franchise, which will take part in a 12-week regular season starting near the end of August.
It is the third Canadian franchise awarded by the LFL — joining the BC Angels and Toronto Triumph. The LFL is a seven-on-seven tackle women’s football league in the U.S. that featured 11 American teams in the 2011-12 season. Players wear shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, garters, bras, panties, and ice hockey-style helmets with clear plastic visors instead of face masks.
“It’s something different; we’ve seen a lot of the video footage and some of the coverage from the league last year in the United States and thought it was something different — a little on the risky side — but why not give it a chance and see if the market will bear it?” said Neil Donnelly, Brandt Centre vice-president of events and entertainment.
