The women's Lingerie Football League (LFL) has released the 2013 schedule for the Kent-based Seattle Mist.

The Mist will play two home games at the ShoWare Center and two road games during the 2013 season. The league early this year shifted its previous fall-winter schedule played from 2009-2011 to a spring-summer schedule in 2013.

Here is the schedule:

• Saturday, April 6 Green Bay Chill at Seattle Mist, 8 p.m.

• Saturday, May 4, Seattle Mist at LA Temptation, 8 p.m.

• Saturday, July 6, Minnesota Valkryie at Seattle Mist, 8 p.m.

• Saturday, July 20, Seattle Mist at Las Vegas Sin, 8 p.m.

Seattle also will play the B.C. Angels of Canada in an exhibition game at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15 at the ShoWare Center.

The 12-team LFL plans to play the Lingerie Bowl on Saturday, Aug. 31 at a site to be determined.

League officials started LFL Canada in August and plan to add LFL Australia in December 2013 and LFL Europa in 2015.

The 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. There is no punting or field goals. Teams must throw at least two passes every four downs.

Players, who are not paid, wear helmets with clear face shields, shoulder pads, sports bras, tight shorts, elbow and knee pads.
