Toronto, April 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The organizers of the Lingerie Football League says the sport is here to stay. The organizers on Tuesday announced that Toronto would be joining the league this fall.

The Toronto team has not been named but officials are expected to come out later this week to make further details available concerning the name and where the team would play its matches.

The sport has been called controversial mainly due to its physical nature and the way the players dress. The women only get to wear scanty dresses while playing the game. The game is played on 7-on-7 basis. Toronto is expected to use Ricoh for their first two games.

The owners of Toronto F.C., MLSE, said they do not have any stake in the new league. They explained that their facility, Ricoh Coliseum is available for rent. The director of corporate communications of MLSE, Rajani Kamath, explained that their facilities have been previously used for concerts and other things.

The LFL was launched back in 2009 but it immediately received criticisms for being sexist. Two of the teams that started the league folded back in last season.
