Lin­gerie Foot­ball

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

LIN­GERIE foot­ball was born in the United States back in 2003 as an al­ter­na­tive Su­per Bowl half time show, aptly named Lin­gerie Bowl. The game is a seven-on-seven tackle Amer­i­can foot­ball league that has grown in pop­u­lar­ity since its in­cep­tion. Play­ing style is full-con­tact and sim­i­lar to other in­door foot­ball leagues, only the play­ers are scant­ily clad in just the bare min­i­mum of gear and cloth­ing. The uni­form con­sists of shoul­der pads, el­bow pads, knee pads, per­for­mance wear and ice hockey-style hel­mets. Prior to the 2013 sea­son, play­ers wore garters, bras and panties. There are no field goals and no punts. A team must at­tempt to get a first down on ev­ery fourth down. Af­ter a touch­down, a team can at­tempt a one point con­ver­sion from the one-yard line, or a two-point con­ver­sion from the three-yard line. In 2012 Aus­tralia hosted two games of the All-Fan­tasy Tour and cap­tured the at­ten­tion of the na­tion. LFL Aus­tralia is set to de­but in De­cem­ber, with four teams ex­pected to play, the New South Wales Surge, Queens­land Brigade, Vic­to­ria Maidens and the Western Aus­tralian An­gels.
