Lingerie Football comes to Jacksonville
Florida News: Lingerie Football League franchise, Tampa Breeze, moves to Jacksonville
If you’re into the niche sport of lingerie football and usually catch a game at the St. Pete Times Forum, the Tampa Breeze team has now been moved to Jacksonville after three successful seasons. According to a Lingerie Football League (LFL) press release, officials have an agreement with Veterans Memorial Arena and are moving the Tampa Breeze franchise to Jacksonville, where they will take on the moniker, Jacksonville Breeze. Due to a potential ticket and schedule conflict at the arena, the move was sparked by the St. Pete Times Forum, who also owns the Arena Football League Tampa Storm.
“This is an exciting moment for us here at Veterans Memorial Arena as we become part of one of the most exciting LIVE sports that is aggressively building momentum. We welcome the opportunity to kickoff the Jacksonville Breeze franchise”, said Larry Wilson, the General Manager of Veterans Memorial Arena.
