The Seattle Mist, a team of the Lingerie Football League, is having a training camp at Kent’s ShoWare Center this month, culminating in a media day July 15 with a 7-on-7, full-contact team scrimmage. The scrimmage is a final test for many players as they try to make the 2009/2010 Seattle Mist roster. Stay tuned for Kent Reporter coverage on the spectacle.

A form of adult entertainment where women athletes play full-contact football in pads and lingerie, the Lingerie Football League has developed franchises across the country. The Seattle Mist, which will call the ShoWare Center home in its first-ever season, will have its opener Sept. 11 in Kent, versus the San Diego Seduction.

The Mist will play one other game at the ShoWare Center for their season: on Jan. 1, against the Dallas Desire.

Their two other games are away: Oct. 9 against the Denver Dream; and Nov. 27 versus the Los Angeles Temptation.

Tickets are available by logging onto www.ShoWareCenter.com or by calling 253.856.6999 or by visiting the ShoWare Center box office.

Fans also can will be able to watch LFL Friday Night Football action in 1080i high-definition on KMYQ (MyNetwork Television) Channel 22, 10 & 110.

“We are excited to be the official and exclusive home of the Seattle Mist. Seattle loves its sports teams and we look forward to introducing LFL, Friday Night Football, to our viewers. We believe that they will deliver edge-of-your-seat compelling football in HD”, said Pam Pearson, SVP/general manager for Q13 Fox/My Q2.

“Seattle Mist fans will make ShoWare Center one of the toughest environments in the league for visiting teams,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, founder and chairman of Lingerie Football League. “Our partnership with My Q2 on Friday nights will enable fans to catch all the action in 1080i HD and make for a high-energy night of programming which will include WWE and LFL football.”
