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

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.
