“Exhilarating” is the word I’m looking for to describe the Legends Football League (LFL) Victoria Maidens’ Media Launch last 3 September 2013 at the AAMI Park! The LFL, formally known as the Lingerie Football League, was founded in the United States in 2003 after a successful Superbowl half-time game. LFL US is currently in its 4th season, commencing in 2009 with 12 teams. LFL has had successful franchises in Canada in 2012, Australia in 2013, and will come to Europe and Asia in 2015. It is one of the highest-rated live sports series in the US today.

On 26 July 2012, the first LFL Australia team was unveiled as the New South Wales Surge to be based in Sydney. The Surge will play its home games at Skoda Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park, New South Wales.  On 8 August 2012, the Queensland Brigade was announced as the next franchise to be based on the Gold Coast at Skilled Park. On 24 January 2013, the Victoria Maidens, to play at AAMI Park in Melbourne and the Western Australia Angels, to be based at NIB Stadium in Perth, were unveiled as the final two franchises for the inaugural LFL Australia season.

LFL Australia is scheduled to premiere in December 2013, with the Legends Cup Championship game scheduled for February next year. The Victoria Maidens will be joining the Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Rebels, Melbourne Victory and Melbourne Heart in calling AAMI Park home. They are also the first women’s sporting team to be homed at the Stadium.

Tickets to the event can be purchased from Ticketek.com.au.
