Hot, strong and excited, these are words used to describe Legend Football League – a women’s rugby league.
The matches of “Inner Rugby” are 35 minutes long, inspired by the “Lingerie Bowl” – the performance of the cheerleaders wearing fiery lingerie, taking place during the break of Super Bowl (American football championship match).
Legend Football League is seen as an intersection between sport and entertainment. In the LFL tournament, wearing underwear is a must. However, to ensure the safety of the athletes, the protective gear at the head, elbows, legs… are still necessary tools.
Initially, the tournament brought together 12 participating teams, but the current draw is only 7. In addition, the tournament is held in Canada and Australia.
It has been nearly 9 years since birth, but the Legend Football League has still caused mixed reactions of public opinion. Many people believe that the women’s football matches made Legend Football League pastime too sexy and vulgar, while the loyal fans of this tournament, most of them men, are particularly fond of the tournament.
In this American football tournament, the players also rush to each other to fight like their male colleagues. The tricks such as swearing the referee, cultivating beer in the middle of the game or tearing the pants, dropping the shirt are also put in the maximum level for the purpose of entertainment.
According to US statistics, there are no fewer than 1 million paid subscribers to watch Legend Football League matches. Meanwhile, the audience to the stadium to see the American football matches is always very high.
