If you’re looking for a football fix this August, the Lingerie Football League and MTV2 have announced the return of LFL Presents: Friday Night Football. MTV2 will broadcast the entire upcoming LFL 2011-12 season live and in full-length form for the first time ever.
“We are truly excited to bring LFL back to MTV2 to continue our great partnership and see the continued evolution and growth of the league on the network,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder & Chairman, Lingerie Football League, LLC. “With the incredible viewer interest in 2010, the move to airing LIVE full-length games on MTV2 in 2011 will only add to our viewership and explosive buzz for the LFL.”
The season premiere will air on Aug. 26 from Green Bay, Wis. During the season, MTV will air 20 live regular season games, two conference playoff games and the LFL’s championship game. The Lingerie Bowl competes directly with the Super Bowl halftime show.
“We are thrilled to broadcast LFL Presents: Friday Night Football LIVE this year on MTV2 as we bring back the exciting, signature style of football that only the LFL can deliver, ” said Eric Conte, SVP, Programming Development and Production, MTV2. “Although there’s a possibility that pro football may be sidelined this season, the LFL on MTV2 will continue to bring football fans the action and intense gameplay they crave.”
