A female American football league in the US has sparked controversy due to its revealing team kit.
The Lingerie Football League (LFL
) requires all players to wear women's underwear
. This includes sports bras and knickers, as well as helmets, protective shoulder pads and elbow and knee pads to safeguard them from injury.
In a video posted on WomenTalkSports
, Dr LaVoi
the associate director of the Tucker Centre for Research on Girls and Women in Sports, lambasted the game.
claimed that the league was "not about sport". She added: "I would argue that what they're really marketing here is sex. They're not marketing true women's professional sport."LFL
has admitted that while the women do wear small uniforms, the game is just like any other spectator sport and the skills of the women should be praised and not criticised
