The women's Lingerie Football League returns in December to Kent.
Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 24 for an exhibition game Saturday, Dec. 15 at the ShoWare Center between the Seattle Mist and the BC Angels in what's billed as the Pacific Cup "Border War" between LFL Canada and LFL USA.
“Our focus in 2012 has been to brand LFL beyond our U.S. borders and the Pacific Cup will be a great annual rivalry game serving to engage not only our established Seattle Mist fan base but a growing BC Angels fan nation," said Mitchell Mortaza, founder and chairman of the Las Vegas-based Lingerie Football League, in a media release.
The league plans to make the Pacific Cup an annual game between the Seattle Mist and the BC Angels with home venues alternating each season.
After three years of play, the LFL in April canceled the 2012 season as officials decided to switch the league's season to the spring and summer rather than the fall-winter schedule used since the league started in 2009. Kent has had a team for three years.
The 12-team league features scantily clad women playing seven-on-seven tackle football on a 50-yard field. They play 17-minute halves. Each offense features a quarterback, center, two running backs and three receivers.
The players wear helmets with clear face shields, shoulder pads, sports bras, panties, elbow and knee pads.
Players are not paid and attend tryouts to make the team rosters.
Tickets for the Pacific Cup cost $15 to $85 and are available at the ShoWare box office and showarecenter.com.
