TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
After years of waiting, indoor football is coming to
Toledo, although not in the form many were expecting.
Formerly called the Lingerie Football League, the Legends
Football League is moving its Cleveland franchise to Toledo, and has booked
games for May 10 and June 21 at the Huntington Center. Lucas County
Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak is expressing concerns, and released the
an ex-officio member of the Convention and Visitors Bureau Board, I have
formally shared my lack of support for this activity coming to our community.
We work hard in our community on behalf of women, men and families, and hold
them in the highest regard. We would like to remain on that path. The citizens
will now have a choice of supporting or not supporting this event."
Even though there are concerns about the perception of
women being exploited by having scantily-clad players with more focus on what
they're wearing and not what they're doing, Huntington Center Manager Steve
Miller says ultimately the community will decide whether or not it'll be a
success in Toledo.
"We're owned by the taxpayers," Miller said. "Our job is
to get events into the facility. The taxpayers will make a decision whether
they want to go. They'll tell us by buying tickets. If they buy tickets, the
league will continue to play. If they don't, they'll have to look at their
Ticket prices for the events range between 10 and 75
dollars. The league will host open tryouts to field a team on January 4 at a
location yet to be determined.
